The Mission of Greater
New Haven Help Alliance is to form genuine alliances of both faith-based and
otherwise secular people and organizations who desire to work together toward
enhancing the lives of New Haven youth. We offer three basic programs:
1. Gang of Dads is a mentoring program serving young men (ages 12-17) through both group and one-on-one mentoring. Mentees are boys who lack sufficient positive adult male influences in their lives. Prospective mentors and mentees are encouraged to participate in at least two of our monthly group meetings before a match is made. The program elements of The Gang of Dads are F-Fun, A-Academic Success, C-Community Service, E-Employment/Entrepreneurial Skills, and S-Skills for Life (FACES).
2. GNHHA has offered a 4 week Summer program for New Haven students of High School age for over 10 years. The students meet each weekday morning for team building and leadership development. In the afternoons, they are brought to work sites throughout the city. They are paid $200 per week as a stipend. NOTE: After 10 consecutive years of running this program, we are taking a one year hiatus during the Summer of 2017. Personnel changes and budget uncertainties have caused us to take a step back and begin planning for 2018.
3. Our third program is an Adopt-a-School program, now in its fifth year at the Lincoln Bassett School. We supply tutors and in in-school mentors.
