The goals of Fiver’s programs are to empower underserved youth to make ethical and healthy decisions, become engaged citizens, and succeed in school and the workforce. Fiver Foundation wants to improve Camp Fiver, its summer residential program that focuses on character, health and environmental education, literacy, athletics, and the arts. The Foundation believes that its curriculum is incomplete, unorganized, and outdated. The lack of formal lesson plans has led to underprepared staff and inconsistency in program delivery. Fiver plans to hire an expert in each of the six program areas to review, revise, and create a new curriculum for each area. Staff preparation and training will also be included in the improvement.
Fiver Children’s Foundation provides youth development programming such as out-of-school time programs, character building summer camp, and partnerships with schools and community organizations.
