PAYBAC Program Goals

Program Goals

With the help of successful people like you, we can motivate our young people - the parents, professionals, and presidents of tomorrow - to stay in school and develop the skills they need to achieve meaningful employment and enjoy a fruitful life.

You and your experiences can serve as an example to middle school students in the Clark County School District through the Professionals And Youth Building a Commitment (PAYBAC).

As a PAYBAC volunteer, you will share with middle school students the message to continue their education, set goals, and plan for the future. The talk is short, about 45 minutes, in front of about 35 students.


Targeted Population

Middle school (grades sixth, seventh, and eighth) is often a difficult period for students. This is the age when students need to hear from adults the importance of continuing their education, setting goals, and planning for their future. There is also a need to share the same message with students who are attending alternative middle or high schools (behavioral schools). Making bad choices and giving into peer pressure can lead students away from their education and dreams. With your assistance, we can motivate our young people - the parents, professionals, and presidents of tomorrow - to stay in school and develop the skills they need to achieve meaningful employment and enjoy a fruitful life.
