And CMI and Scotland about what helped buffalo it any of that overview of what hope uplifting for our community. Sure it's children thank you and good morning everyone thinks well on us is wonderful opportunity. Hope Buffalo's do you think to me led initiative. That started three years ago. Back into me fifteen we received a two million dollar grant from the office of adolescent health to replicate evidence based teen pregnancy programs. Our communities with the greatest need and these are programs have been proven to work to be effective. And also. One of those deliverables were that we scale up. Our reach in terms of the China we're reaching as many youth. Parents on candles as possible so having said that over the past three years we've invested over six million dollars. And to the community which has allowed us an opportunity to address specifically. Adolescent health issues in particular. Teen pregnancy prevention. Just a Syracuse and social map the virus might say. They look at the national statistics of months adolescents between the ages of fifteen and nineteen per 1000. The teen pregnancy rate is roughly around 22%. To bring that locally or in New York State is roughly about 33%. Per 1000 amongst same age group. An hour nine select is typical areas. That that number is. Really. A 64%. Per 1000 so this is twice that. Of the well below the state level at three times that of a national level. So really what hobo flow has done them and you did do is to Pringle forty close to fifty different organizations some formal relationships. Some and forma basis. And into work with them in a manner that allows us. To reach youth with the greatest and am very happy to be you would you know confident girl mentally program could date on some fabulous work. And the very short period of time to sustain on the scale social map. Assist come on board. You know they've reached over a 150 young ladies in the same age group and less than thirty days which is for them out so we were very excited about the work that they don't community. Guessing or there and I wanna see that I think that's really the pinnacle of this conversation because that's what. It's really about is that partnering that hope buffalo has created and built. Aaron and where you are today. And in terms of moving that purpose should movie for us here don't know some of the initiatives that you bring to the table. Sir thank you good morning everyone this is Tiffany Lewis here from founder CEO of confident Grumman time program. As damaged him before as far as building sustainable relationships. And as one of our goal is to make sure that we too. I'll push that agenda forward and talking about evidence based programming. Confident from answering program is just that it's an evidence based program actually builds confidence and self esteem and our young ladies and the west in New York area. Some of our programs that we do have would be. Umpteen. The evidence based program cost seventeen days which is a teen pregnancy and to attend that teaches you about sexual health. And also we have Peerman time programs they have leadership components of the program. And also something that we says implement it last year what is the first and New York State which is youth conference today. So with that the instead. We be able to continues to. Provide a leveraged those relationships that we have with community based organizations as elements hold off as so how are you getting you know Alice. And it involved with accounting mentoring program. So confident garments and program as a school based initiative so we worked a lot with the buffalo public schools as well last the community and community based organizations as well. So with that we also have relationships that we have right here. To me establishing confident her mentoring program as a celebrity S petition so we tied that and and we continue to push that agenda for the. It can't come into your celebrity asks is it yes. As well let's go up and around our resonate you know to move out well. Ahead. Though prior to. The confident government's program my background is government relations human being used has been. Actually the first African American theme receive. And it costs a lot about Tyler got cancer patients as. Professional athletes. World now artistic directors and he's on the news that's great. Well. I know that I got at best I can for that matter and that is in the you ambassador's view it. And it's got into the like this I am. Asa have a wonderful board president here pregnancy and Lambert so then agree champion for the program. That the morning Maryland even the hair. For sure a little bit about who you are what you do. Okay well this morning I'm here on the covenant girl's side. I think say I am the sealed at Diane the CEO the board of directors for a for a Catholic girl mentoring program. And my role is to continue to support programming in every way that I possibly can given the word out to the various community. I'm also has to do you mention that I'm part building those relationships and tells hard working with our with our youth within our school system. I currently work for saying yes awful as a community school manic interact when a proposal public schools. And Delaware as one of the programs through confident girl is being held the boundaries program so there is that the terrorists into a link. In addition to that I serve I do a lot of community work as it relates to my role. Ads on the navigator acts at one. And my role look at this this just to get the word out and also be promoting. I'm promoting our youth because this it's obviously important. That our young people have a voice say they and they have program where they can come. And express. Their needs and also all of venue where they can build. Their self confidence in areas where where where needed. Austin yes advertisers want thank you for sharing that information because I'm I think that's one of the essence of hope buffalo when we talking about the partnerships not just one organization is not one entity. This us as a community work collectively. To assure that our children have been needs to tools and resources necessary to that they succeed. We're happy to partner with CS and also sees AMP company grooming him program. And others to ensure that you know there's no missed opportunity. To ensure that our youth are getting what they need in order to me informed decisions about health about the education of their life. Yes every one of the messages that I am hearing. Or my biggest takeaways that it might beat a women young ladies driven initiative. But is also something that's also directed to the man and we can encourage women to make better decisions. Those women will help our process then make better decisions. Absolutely agree to experiment. Yes so with that. It's it's all about foundational relationships are so you mention and more about women helping others. That's is what it is is not just the women held in others it's community helping others so as we continue to assist and that. That. That. Programming that will create that's. I. Nozzle back to speak to that point is well. And talking about the tiny it's very important for us and sort maintain health. The relationship it has to come from both at those so we're talking no matter what young lady's roots are currently focusing on your particular moment but is also talking about our young as well. And we do provide program where were are partnering and partnership but other organizations to RC yes and their communities schools program. That we bring in programs specifically targeting young man. To do along the same lines being youth. Empowering our our young men to make. Decisions rightful decision to make decisions that are more positive. Also promoting the south and soft and health and well being of arm of RR a are you are young men as well. And I'm hearing is like Kennedy early intervention absolutely and educating. Youth. From an early age of China and you know make the best decisions and live their pass play and be healthy actually ask successful and can it have a direction. As I guess we know that our young people they make their decisions based on what's up what's around them into your point. The earlier that we could that we can get to start in with our young people we know that the road which he will travel. Will be positive and then an also a safe once so to their point it is all about those early interventions. With our young people starting at home and also starting. As soon as they leave their house in the trident two the academia and also owned and two of the social social context with the when they're building the flesh with difference. And I think it's so important because before which are first rate are and I wanna hear from everyone confident girl that's that's a strong and powerful statement.

And I invested in our studio and it helped buffalo and a confident girls that can't think I'll mentoring program and Tiffany list is the founder and CEO. Of copping a mentoring programs I think you so much being any thing why doesn't little bit with the mission is behind I think I'll mentoring. SARS our mission as to embody developments and strategies and workshops that takes the evidence on his journey to use of development. And self discovery well and understand the importance of taking care of the mind body and spirit. So we on now is all about the mind body and spirit if we're now ot together realistically. However that will be totally off balance so that's the mission is to make sure that you know us as adults and students. Have the proper. Balance that we need to you know be able to sustain hours. Ourselves and our youth so look programs can tell us you know be part of within kind of income entering the health. We demonstrate that ballistic talent or even whether its restoring it or just even. Starting so aren't about asses and realize that confident garments and program has six different components. There's a man time component we ass I have Peerman time which is include and that were the older students can be mentors for the younger students. We also have camp confidence. We also have a leadership component which is a two phase component. And which bits of where you are now. Vs where will UB and that program has also with a certified life coach that we have on Bora which is consider our boundaries program. We also have peace and confidence. Which we have keynote speakers that come and our leaders are elected officials that comment to speak to the youth about self development and engagement. Ask any I think it's. Such a great opportunity for young girls if I had to think mentoring is four and understanding. Where they're liking now having. He's at the keys. The heat needed to kind of help them succeed in life and think it's awesome absolutely at what age groups you worked so Margaret ages seven through nineteen. And New York State we also have programming not only in buffalo goalie also have programming and Niagara fonts as well. Which are notes is another demographic area or self esteem is really low so considering what those numbers are in the percentage of self esteem. Where they have less confidence. Is very high. Confident grow mentoring program as a power of mentor connector which has the largest United States referral system for a man tarring. Growth so we're a part of that. Which you leave basically just got our recognition and last month and I Phillies and half you could just program yeah I guess I am. An effort to return over question because with the mentoring coaching there are going to different program that you bring to the table. The one thing you have Nektar story and I know was there is diversity. Because our diversity and inclusion is so important we can be armed. We can internalize how to be better as individuals put it I can't reach across to tell people. And have a conversation with do you have a conversation with you because of so in tune so compare myself that's soft shell. I don't I I know it happens though that's. It sounds like confident. I'm telling me after I have. OK apple west of us. Know yeah I know there is sanity and a confidence in it when people are lacking in matters even. Lacking the opportunity to tie and helped them develop their confidence that it was not great at their programs out there to help. Helped Iraq so individuals to use. Grew older and and that's one thing that's really unique about happening government's program as that we try to change you just want you inmate. Be better versions as so that's art had his building confidence from within because it starts from it and it touched on the holiday diversity appease. It's important in Albanian. Harvard graduate. Bill and about the parent engagement and community involvement and adversity like that's huge that something that. We really really needs to. Relates to our youth and ourselves with it's all about building confidence that's what and you. And and that's right and also to that point. That we now live and they. A world I wanna say a melting pot because that we live in a diverse. On world and it's equal it's very important for us to understand. The different senses that we have between us which makes us all unique in. One in as one individual. And and speaking to some of the useless that are are within confident girl program we have a 10% of young people. They the school district particularly at some of the schools that we are in west hurdle. East.
