COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Dinez Merrao Training aims to serve as a “safe haven” for the community by providing various afterschool programs and opportunities for youth to be engaged in community wide activities. We will help encourage our clients’ potential for success outside of the gym by providing them with the opportunity to obtain helpful information regarding the college application process, resume building workshops, networking opportunities with college and professional teams, and additional information to help further advance their professional careers.

 

Dinez Merrao Youth Mentor Program

Dinez Merrao’s mentoring program will strive to establish positive, healthy, and productive mentoring experiences for youth within the community. Our youth mentoring program will match at-risk youth between the ages of 7 and 18 with volunteer adult mentors who will meet each week, for at least two hours, to establish a genuine one-on-one relationship. Ultimately we aim to expose the youth to a better sense of well-being, more confidence, enhanced sense of trust, and a heightened sense of self-esteem.

Dinez Merrao After School Power Hour program

The physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, recommended that children and adolescents aged 6-17 years should have 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity each day. Dinez Merrao will provide and administer physical activities that are appropriate and enjoyable for youth of all ages. These variety of activities will focus on aerobic, muscle-strengthening, and bone strengthening physical activity and will be provided at least 3 days of the week.
