Miracle Works LTD. is a community service based program, located in Indianapolis, IN. We are excited to present our Virtual Mentoring Program. It is our goal is to assist the students we service in changing negative thinking patterns through exposure, role modeling, and positive thoughts. Once this change occurs, youth become more receptive to the learning/social environment. Also, the implementation of their coping skills can transcend into the home environment to make a positive impact. Our staff assist students by providing a virtual environment to process their problems and learn productive coping strategies. In addition, parents have an opportunity to discuss concerns and learn ways to more effectively deal with their children. Staff is trained in behavioral management techniques, data collection, report writing, and teambuilding.
Miracle Works LTD. promotes positive socialization, social and family relationships, and support for existing educational programing. Parent and guardian participation is seen as crucial in the development and implementation of the mentoring process. Our mission is to advance the quality of life of the student facing behavioral difficulties. The Miracle Works’ mentoring program is nine (9) weeks in duration and consist of individual and group mentoring. Each week, all participants will meet weekly with their assigned mentor. Mentors will schedule a designated time each will to meet engage in face to face to mentoring. These sessions include community activities, life skills training, and mentorship guidance. These sessions may have a 1:3 mentor to mentee ratio. Due to COVID-19 we ask that when all participants wear a face a mask when engaged in face to face mentoring. These sessions may change to virtual-face to face mentoring based on COVID-19 precautions and the mentor’s discretion.
Additionally, all participants will engage in virtual group mentoring. There will be a total of four (4) virtual group mentoring sessions. Please seethe schedule for the virtual group mentoring sessions. These group mentoring sessions will engage all participants in learning coping skills (curriculum),positive decision making, building healthy relationships, independent living guidance, and positive communications with parents, teachers, and peers.
The program will include positive reinforcements such as long term and short term rewards to help motivate each participant to meet their goals. These incentives will generally be family centered to encourage family bonding. Successful completion of the program will be tracked through a point system. To complete the program successfully, each participant is required to meet 85% of their goals. The student’s point achievement, behaviors, and success will be tracked on a weekly progress report. Mentors will make weekly contact with all parent(s)/guardian(s). These contacts will involve communication about your child(ren)’s goals, successes, areas of need, problem-solving, and personal life situations.
