How We Came To Be

How We Came To Be


The Mills Korner Inc., mentoring program is set as a program which provides direct and indirect services, such as counseling and/or involvement in positive activities, for children who may be exposed to adverse behavior(s). As a program, we work hand in hand with our local schools, counseling organizations, and other community services in an attempt to bring the resources of the community to help shoulder the critical issues of our young people in need of special attention, guidance, and direction.

The Mills Korner (TMK) provides at-risk middle and high school students with a community of highly-trained professional mentors and advisors who help each student to stay in school, excel in their academic curricula, and develop a life-map for present achievement and rewarding future careers.
Additionally, TMK enhances positive learning that has taken place in each child’s life while at the same time filtering out negative and limiting experiences to ensure greater success. TMK operates as a fully engaged programmatic model of sustainable change by introducing to every child enrolled in the program: school retention activities; individualized educational programs, career planning; volunteer opportunities; and social construction to navigate complex and challenging roads in life.

The mentoring, tutoring, athletic youth development, as well as life coaching is the path to success and life attainment. We encourage the child’s family to play an integral and supportive role throughout the process. TMK partners with families and schools to ensure children succeed academically, behaviorally and psychologically.

Another facet of The Mills Korner is training teachers and training the trainer. TMK helps educators by equipping them with 21st Century teaching modalities and techniques in the classroom so that all students realize their full potential.
