Positive Development For A Better Tomorrow
I Pour Life believes that every isolated person deserves the opportunity to gain social capital and build a network of trusted relationships, just like we all depend on for a better life.
The Value of Social networks and Positive Relationships
At-risk youth face a form of social and economic disadvantage that drastically increases their risk of school drop out, incarceration, homelesness, and unplanned pregnancies. But we believe there is a form of positive development training that can avoid these risks altogether.
Building Social Capital
The key is increasing social capital. Through one-on-one coaching and our LifeStrengths curriculum, we help at-risk youth locally and around the world develop the social network and positive adult relationships they need to find hope, purpose, and a path to a better future.
I Pour Life develops people for stronger communities.
We teach individuals with social and economic disadvantages how to identify and apply their unique strengths to become self-sufficient.
There are three ways to support and empower change in a community: relief, rehabilitation, and development.
Through an evidence-based development strategy, I Pour Life programs provide an opportunity for longterm, sustainable change for the individual and the greater community. With the right opportunities and influence, I Pour Life believes anyone can thrive.
Our communities are stronger when we all work together for the betterment of our neighbors.
LifeStrengths is a positive youth development model that utilizes evidence-based curriculum and rigorous one-on-one coaching to prepare youth for education, job placement, and healthy decision making. It does this by helping youth advance their social networks and develop healthy adult relationships.
LifeStrengths has been nationally recognized for its effectiveness and has been adapted for international use in some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. In addition to its direct programs, I Pour Life offers certifications and training to help community, religious, and government leaders discover the power of social capital and the skills necessary to positively develop isolated populations.
EVIDENCE-BASED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
LifeStrengths is the evidence-based program focused on positive youth development that advances foster care and other at-risk youth to a place of self-sufficiency and independence from government subsidies.
