Mission Statement


SBEF’s mission is to foster the development of young people so that they may go on to lead productive lives and build healthy families. We offer programs in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere that promote intellectual, cultural and moral growth of youth. We strive to educe from them strong character with a positive vision of the future and the necessary skills to achieve their goals. Recognizing the profound dignity of the person, we believe that every child is a gift worthy of our highest efforts and deepest respect. Our motto, ‘Together We Can’, reflects the collaboration of staff, parents and volunteers that has made our programs successful. We have developed our character-building activities based on the fundamental principles of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Description


SBEF focuses on character development through a mentor relationship. Its program centers, Rosedale for girls and Crotona for boys, provide an environment that can best foster the personal cultivation of each child. Our participants, drawn from some 35 public and parochial schools, engage in full-time achievement and career-building activities, leadership clubs, music and art courses, tutoring and standardized test preparation activities, job training and parenting programs.
