A resilience and objective focused mentoring program.
What is StrengthCorps?
In the StrengthCorps program, mentors help young West Virginians discover and build upon their personal strengths as they overcome obstacles and move toward their dreams.

Step 1: Identify Students
Identify the young people in the community that would benefit most from counseling and mentoring.
Step 2: Communicate with Students
Communicate with the students honestly about the program and what they want to do with their lives. Help them to achieve their goals with objective-based counseling and weekly contact.
Step 3: Discover Strengths and Provide Support
Help the students discover their unique Strengths, understand what that means for them personally, and provide support for them throughout their growing years.
The program uses proven methods to improve the lives of the youth in WV.
We see how much good it can do.
When resilient youth are provided a caring mentor, good things are likely to happen.
This is a five year project.
We are looking for the most effective way to apply a mentoring model in our underfunded rural and inner-city schools.
Chapmanville Middle School
Logan Middle School
Man Middle School
Horace Mann Middle School
In our first year,
We tried different approaches. Two of the schools had great results. We're detailing what they did right so other schools can do the same.
Show that this approach is worth the money. We'll declare victory if we get the kind of results in other schools that Chapmanville Middle School got in 2017-18.
Chapmanville Middle School is located in a depressed coal mining area with high rates of diabetes and opioid abuse and underfunded schools.
If they can find success with the program, your school can too!
