UTHSC Relative Caregiver Program "Empowering Young Males for Success"

The University of Tennessee Relative Caregiver Program, Empowering Young Males for Success, is a Preventive Model mentoring program. Our goal is to work with boys, ages 10 to 15 that are being raised by our Relative Caregivers. About 90% of the boys that are part of the Relative Caregiver Program have no positive male role models and most of the families, if not all, are on a fixed income and cannot afford to have their kids participate in any programs such as cub scouts or boy scouts.

Most of the children that are being raised by their caregiver are doing well in school and at home; they are exhibiting no significant behavioral problems. The goal of the University of Tennessee Relative Caregiver Program, Empowering Young Males for Success, is to provide encouraging tools and activities for the young males to stay on the path to success.

The Relative Caregiver Program has implemented the caregiver support group conference call. The topic of discussion will be related to the theme of each month. If you are a caregiver and would like to join in on the conference call, please call 901 448-3323 for more information.
