In 2016, Derrick Brooks Charities partnered with PACE Center for girls & The City of Tampa Parks Department to launch a Life Skills course that began in the summer of 2016. The program materials have been customized specifically to meet the needs of each of these agencies!
The pilot for this program was successful and we received a positive response from the students . DBC may plan to increase/enhance the program for future use. Some of the additional components include “Game Changers” which will assist youth in learning to face adversity in life and learning to deal with it positively. We will begin with the “Building your Brand” section of the program which will include the following areas to be covered, work ethic, self control and values. We are so excited to work with these two great agencies and we will provide updates as the program succeeds!!
