AEA Mentoring Education Program


The success of the Mentoring Education Program is due to its focus on developing citizens of character. The program instills a cognizance of the responsibility associated with success. The AEA Mentoring Education program continues to instill values that will enrich participant’s lives and strengthen the community.

Currently, AEA is in and developing cooperative partnerships with independent school districts across the United States. Identified at-risk students under go a selection process based on need and desire to be in the program. They will abide by a strict lesson plan and be required to meet their performance objectives. Performance objectives include: attendance at school and training, consistent improvement of grades and excellent conduct at all times. The students receive a letter grade at the end of the semester.

Similarly, additional at-risk children are identified by referral and are provided lessons and mentoring which include: Tae Kwon Do training, counseling and grade management. The Mentoring Education Program is conducted on a yearly basis, with two school semesters and the summer session.

The instructional outline of each lesson is designed with the development of focus as the first goal. With this overall theme the participants are taken through periods consisting of aerobic and anaerobic exercises, stretching and strengthening and some very basic martial arts training. After students master the basics of focus and physical preparedness, more intensive training is employed. A clear step-by-step method is employed creating a primary series of goals and building confidence in the participants by mastery of each goal. Every three months participants who have earned the right participate in a special exam that focuses on physical, technical and mental elements. This exam provides the first major goal uniting the primary series of goals achieved.

Other assistance includes tutoring and grade management. Students are required to bring their progress reports and report cards to keep on file with the masters. Consecutively, world-class instructors relate personal stories of their walk to success and overcoming their fears, obstacles and challenges. This communication with the students provides a tangible relevance for understanding their situation and the more complex ideology of success
provided in the lesson plan.
