Our summer mentoring program is the primary focus in our multi-faceted, immersion philosophy. In addition to gaining a deep relationship with Christ and their community, each Family Foundation Fund son will learn about fiscal responsibility, gain insights into the professional world of business, and mature their academic goals. Along with these spiritual and professional benefits, our sons are immersed in cross-cultural pollination through travel and community outreach in an effort to expand their worldviews. The long-term qualitative goal of the Family Foundation Fund summer mentoring program is the restoration of fatherhood as a progressive strategy to benefit and heal our communities.
The Family Foundation Fund summer mentoring program which we call "Son Camp", is a two-week engagement into community responsibility and integrity, facilitated by a nurturing and highly trained all male staff. It is located in historic Whites Creek, TN (outside of Nashville), and consists of summer "boot camp" and sports camp. Our Son Camp is a wholesome combination and stimulus of personal growth, spiritual maturation and the development of Christ-centered life skills for all our sons. Using a team-based support system, each son learns the value of accountability and is provided ample opportunity to develop life skills, which will allow them to positively contribute to society.
The Family Foundation Fund mentoring program recognizes internships and mentorships as an integral part of its curriculum. Young men under the age of 15 "shadow" local businessmen for two days who act as a mentor and these sons experience a father’s life in the workplace. Family Foundation Fund sons who are of working age (above 15) are placed in summer-long paid internships with some of our cooperate champions such as Vanderbilt University, Chase Construction, and Huseby Homes. This enables them to participate in structured, professional business environments, gaining real time experience. The internship program strives to provide deep business opportunities which help our sons build on, enhance and achieve summer-long financial goals.
Son Farm is our seven-acre organic educational orchard and garden located in Joelton, TN (north of Nashville). Son Farm primarily functions as a learning laboratory for the young men in our program and is a year round resource available to all our program participants, including the mothers, surrogate fathers and the summer (exclusive) participants. All sons learn the power of covenant through the agrarian lenses of science, which demonstrate the totality of life’s journey in a holistic manner over the course of a summer. Their hard work and sweat produces actual, physical results as they see the results of sowing and reaping, which is a life principle. Our ASC (agricultural supporting community) allow the sons to hone foundational life skills, such as supply and demand, entrepreneurship, health and wellness training, and cultivating of a sustainable food source to subsidize food costs to families and the elderly in the community.
