All About Me (AAM)
All About Me (AAM) is primarily a mentoring, tutorial, and employability program, with specific academic and cultural activities tailored to address issues of truancy, social adaptation, and academic performance—in hopes of preparing students to be Pittsburgh Promise Eligible.
Through AAM, students have weekly tutoring session where they receive one-on-one tutoring and academic support. All sessions are tailored to meet students’ specific needs and last approximately 1 hour. The AAM Program closely monitors students’ grades and attendance and conducts home and school visits to support students holistically.
While the primary goal of AAM is to support students in becoming Pittsburgh Promise Scholarship eligible, the underlying purposes include:
1. Expanding the reach of the opportunities Youth Enrichment Services provides to youth not previously eligible to benefit from or aware of our resources.
2. Providing mentoring and direction through social, academic, and family-based programming available in the home, the community, and the school.
3. Transitioning students from school programs to summer work programs, extending their training and providing fiscal relief for families through Learn and Earn’s paid summer internship program.
