We provide services to children who are economically challenged and are considered at risk teens. Many families in the community are in a financial strain and cannot afford to send their children to afterschool programs
that often require a fee. Chords is a free program to the youth between the ages of 11-17. Chords is a safe haven for San Bernardino’s youth. We create a learning atmosphere that allows the youth to enjoy themselves and engaged in structured activities in an effort to minimize risky behaviors,.
The youth can apply the skills learned, to stay productive and to increase their
chances of successful by not engaging in negative behaviors. We strive to
provide youth with the tools needed in order to reach their goals and not fall to
gangs, drugs and alcohol. Chords continues to use its resources to assist youthto be successful whether its taking a youth to visit a college or allowing youth anopportunity otherwise their families may not be able to provide, such asrecording in an industry standard studio and learning multiple job skills hands-on. Chords believe that the skills learned could possibly become a career
in the future.
Chords often deal with at risk teens who are struggling academically and
behaviorally. We do not turn kids away for behaviors, in fact we intervene an assist the youth to be able to modify their behavior by providing the tools they need in order to decrease their behaviors. Chords believe in keeping a strong relationship with the youth families in an effort to see which areas they mayneed support with their youth. At chords, we offer workshops that will assist the youth to make better decision in order to decrease behaviors. At Chords, webelieve in education so while you are participating in the program we require
parents bring the progress report of the youth in order to see where the youth
may need some assistance in, regarding their academics. We want our youth
to be successful and to become leaders who have the ability to overcome the
obstacles they may face.
