New Day Ministries emphasizes people and programs that promote safer, healthier thriving communities. New Day provides low-income, disadvantaged, and at-risk youth and young adults access to caring, committed men and women who have grown up in or survived similar challenging backgrounds to become successful, resilient adults and programs that equip and empower these same young people to go on to create their own successful lives. Our 4-E Approach is a multi-faceted and focused effort at preventing youth violence, intervening and improving youth growth and development, and reclaiming young people who otherwise might end up trapped in the juvenile justice system.
Our goal is to reach hundreds of Louisville youth and young adults in the Louisville Metro where they are today: in their hurt, in their homes, in their neighborhoods, and in their communities. Using our L.O.V.E. WALKS and L.I.F.E. Empowerment Program we will deploy knowledgeable, relatable, and caring adults who spend time with the youth and encourage them to pursue a better way of life.
L.I.F.E. (Love Inspiring Future Excellence) Program
Our goal is to educate young people on crucial life and job skills including academic study skills, effective communication, character development, conflict-resolution strategies, resume-writing, job readiness preparation, and more skills listed below. Teaching young people these skills will help them increase their options and opportunities while improving their outcomes.
L.I.F.E. Skills Training (Classroom Instruction & Experiential Learning Ops)
JOB READY Training
We aim to enrich the Chickasaw Community (our focus) by partnering with youth and young adults within the area to participate in beautification projects.
Our goal is to empower young people to overcome the challenges in their lives and create better, brighter tomorrows while transforming themselves and their communities into safe places where they can live, love, laugh, learn, and thrive. New Day Ministries will connect young people with caring mentors and invites them to participate in cultural and creative experiential learning and living opportunities that show them firsthand the impact they can have now and in the future on their families, neighborhoods, communities, and city through the decisions they make and the actions they take now.
