The Building Dreams platform enables users to make data driven decisions to meet the needs of students, families, and staff. With our ability to engage, collect, and process data through our sensor, we meet the needs of trauma filled schools and communities. We are the sensor that is needed to directly assess and address school culture and climate while proactively shaping the mindset of the student population, their families, and the overall community.
The primary goals are to: Reduce student’s emotional distress; Reduce conduct problems; Improve academic performance; Improve teacher classroom management skills; Increase parental engagement; Improve school culture; and Connect students and families to the care and services they need.
Seal the Deal includes a series of youth flag football camps. While helping students improve their athletic skills, Seal the Deal is designed to help students “Make big plays on and off the field,” by combining the game of football with the game of life and daily character development activities. Seal the Deal means, “Make a big play,” which is what we want our participants to strive for throughout their lives by developing the social skills needed to make even bigger plays off the field.
Seal the Deal is a youth flag football camp and tournament that utilizes sports-related activities as teaching agents to help students “make big plays on and off the field.” The 2-day Youth Football Camps focus on agility, conditioning, football fundamentals, competition, character building, and fun.
