New Expectations will organize and establish a Transitional Services Team to provide a reentry infrastructure model for at-risk youth, either directly or through partnerships with or referrals to other service providers in the following areas:
• “On-The-Job Training” assessments twice per week
• Transitional housing support/referrals
• Self-Sufficiency guidance and support (i.e., S.S. cards, ID's, drivers licenses, etc.); socialization training
• Leadership regeneration through mentorship
• HIV or STD/mental health/substance abuse education, screening and support
• Family reunification and transportation assistance
Community/Social Integration through Activism and Education
New Expectations will organize after-school activities, events and workshops within various communities to establish community services/restitution model, either directly or through partnerships with community, faith-based, political, and/or victim-advocate activists and organizations in the following areas:
• After-school programming and “safe” houses
• Crime and gang intercession monthly forums
• Community forums, workshops and empowerment programming
• Crime-victim awareness and Hip-Hop monthly summits
• Peer-to-peer and at-risk youth dialogue and sponsorship
• Community maintenance services and leadership regeneration
New Expectations will develop a stable, highly qualified and motivated workforce that actively delivers the organization's mission.
New Expectations will be a highly visible, will-respected, non-profit reentry organization that attracts increased numbers of volunteers and higher levels of contributions to support operations, programs and initiatives. Successful implementation of this strategic plan will result in more quality supports and services delivered to at-risk youth clients; more clients “integrated” into community life, contributing to the improvement of public safety and more socially assimilated; and a broader array of groups and individuals within the community valuing and supporting at-risk youth. The ultimate result New Expectations aspires to achieve is far beyond high quality supports and services for at-risk youth. It is about improving public safety by effectively integrating and socially assimilating at-risk youth into the community. This will hopefully bring about change in community life for each and every resident.
Organization of the Strategic Plan
As previously noted, this strategic plan is intended to be a management tool for New Expectations. This plan has two purposes: First, it presents the most comprehensive compilation of the plan and its component parts. It is a record of the strategic planning process and the decisions reached by the Board of Directors and the Steering Committee. Second, it is a reference guide for strategic planning. In the future, New Expectations may choose to produce a summary version of the plan for distribution to its primary and supporting partners and other stakeholders.
