Nonprofit PACT helps underserved 10-15
year olds
make their transition to adulthood a success! In PACT, kids avoid two of the worst "wrong turns" they can make: joining a gang or dropping out of school.

Acclaimed for how its adult-mentored Work Ethic (WE) program's "learning by doing" built self-esteem into upwards of 1000 at-risk 10-15 year olds, now we will work with PACT’s longtime champion, LA Congressman Ted Lieu, to update the 1938 Federal Child Labor Law to permit safe work for children under 16; AND we will seek new character-building explorations for our kids.

  Help Rescue America's Kids from Dropping Out!BESP/IPP overview video   PACT’s Lifetime Education Empowerment Program (LEEP)is proposing for nationally significant in school/after school demonstrations, each with 20 struggling 7th graders, each proceeding at his/her own pace, "learning how to learn," through the explicitly structured computer/workbook mentoring of BESP (Basic Essentials for Social Participation)—until a student gets "stuck." Then they are taken to the IPP (Integrated Practice Protocol) lab for the deep probings of psychological factor analysis—all manner of physical and mental exercises—to assess & clear the learning block, after which they return to BESP to accomplish their "learning how to learn" so they can join regular classes and graduate. (Details are in the Learning Capabilities (LEEP) section.)
