母亲作为第一教师项目

面对现实着眼未来

美国现行的政策和法规不能够解决美国贫困阶层的现实问题。美国贫困阶层的现实问题积重难返,各种纾困项目,福利项目以及教育资源平摊项目都难以从根本上解决问题。作为一个非盈利组织,新生命中心提出,现实问题的解决需要从现在做起,让现在的问题不在将来发生。我们的最低目标是让未来的街头减少一个罪犯,而国家多一个有用的人。即让今天多一个身心健康的孩子,将来社会上少一个人进监狱。最高目标是让美国的未来真正实现美国先父们在宪法中提出来的理想,让美国成为人们自由,平等,幸福,和安全和谐生活的乐土。为此,新生命中心推出“母亲作为第一教师”项目。“母亲作为第一教师”项目由新生命中心下属的汉巍学院具体计划和执行。将分三个层次进行(初高中青少年,小学儿童,学前儿童)三个阶段),目前主要在初高中青少年这一层次进行。其它两个层次的班会随后推出。

“美国青少年妈妈教育能力培训课”

青少年是人生发展中的一个特殊的时期。在这一重要的人生阶段中,母亲的作用不可忽视。但由于单亲母亲缺少资金,时间,条件和方法,无法为孩子们提供良好的成长条件。培训课将为青少年妈妈提供必要的培训,提供正确而科学的教育和管理子女的方法,配合学校引导青少年拥有正确的人生观,事业心和社会责任感。这个项目与前与众不同在于:

全国第一家以母亲为对象以青少年发展为目标的培训班。

所有被录用的妈妈学员将享受工资待遇,平均$3000/月/人。

工资的数量将能过维持妈妈在校学习期间好学区房的房租,房贷,全家的生活费。

每一个母亲的孩子都将自动获取未来上大学期间任何一年的大学学费资助。

母亲学满结业后,离班不离校。继续不定期向学校汇报其孩子的近况,同时继续接受学院专人对学员在孩子上大学以前的指导和咨询。

母亲学员结业后将会被提供在汉巍学院做有偿助教的工作机会,汉巍学院也会负责将结业学员推荐给学院的赞助公司工作,或与社区合作,以支持学员能够和孩子继续在好学区居住和上学。

时间灵活自由,妈妈有足够的时间陪伴和照顾孩子。

第一期招生对象:母亲作为第一教师”的目标人群为有初高中在校孩子且低收入单亲母亲。感兴趣者请与新生命中心联系:Email:info@liferenewingcenter.org. 获取报名表。有关母亲作为第一教师”细节请访问新生命中心网站  liferenewingcenter.org/motherasthefirstteacher


项目理论根据

项目主旨: “母亲作为第一教师”的目标人群为有在学高中以下孩子且低收入单亲母亲。特别是少数族裔单身母亲(single mother of under-representative group)。根据数据统计,单亲贫困家庭成长起来的有色人中犯罪率高于其他人群。因为贫困单亲家庭很难走出贫困的怪圈。*主要的原因是其母亲没有条件,没有时间,没有钱和不知道如何正确地教育和引导子女。我们知道母亲是人生的第一教师。许多著名人物都是因为受到了母亲的直接影响而取得了后来的成就。中国古代 孟子的母亲“子不学,断机杼”和“孟母三迁”言传身教为孩子创造良好成长环境的故事家喻户晓。近代电灯发明家爱迪生,当代的美国第四十四任总统欧巴马等都是在母亲的一手教育和影响下成长起来的。美国黑人民权领袖迈尔克姆说:“母亲是孩子的第一个教师。他给孩子什么,孩子就给世界什么。”**美国诗人沃利斯说,“摇动摇篮的手统治这个世界。” ***这些都从不同的侧面说明母亲对于孩子和未来世界的影响。要培养一个人成为教师并不难,但要让一个人像母亲一样地去无私地爱孩子却不那么容易。而母亲一旦有了条件,时间金钱和合适的方法,她对孩子的爱就会变成一个巨大的动力从而造就出影响未来伟大的人。但是,如果忽视了母亲作为第一教师的作用,就有可能会让一个孩子步入歧途,对社会造成无法挽回的的危害。新生命中心发起“母亲作为第一教师”项目 就是要朝着发挥母亲的积极作用这个方向努力。我们要给前来学习的母亲发工资使其在学习期间得到较高的收入,不用因为需要外出工作而离开孩子和忽视孩子的教育。我们要让母亲们学会如何培养优秀的孩子和未来有用的人才。我们也许不能改变现状,但我们可以改变将来。

母亲们将通过申请和严格的录用程序。入校后分批分期进行培训(每期每班招收8-12人一期三个月)。所有被录用的母亲学员将发放工资。平均$3000/月/人。(具体工资的多少由母亲家庭孩子的人数决定,最低不少于$2000/月,最高不超过少于$4000/月)。工资的数量将能过维持母亲在校学习期间居住/搬迁之好学区的房租,房贷,全家的生活费。每一个母亲的孩子都将自动获取未来上大学期间任何一年的大学学费资助。母亲学满结业后,须定期向学校汇报其孩子的近况,同时继续接受学院专人对学员在孩子上大学以前的指导和咨询。母亲学员结业后将会被提供在汉巍学院做有偿助教的工作机会,汉巍学院也会负责将结业学员推荐给学院的赞助公司工作。“母亲作为第一教师”项目由新生命中心下属的汉巍学院具体计划和执行。

汉巍学院负责在2022年内向社会集资和向政府申请资金,目标:$1,200,000美元。

第一期2023年1月到12月。共4期,每期三个月,每期一个班,每班12人。

具体预算如下:

  1. 支付给学员的工资:一年四期4个班共$432000 。其中包括:一个班为期3个月12人,平均每个学员$3000/月,共$108,000 (3个月x12人x$3000). 
  2. 教师费用$400,000。包括四名教授每人年薪$100,000美元。
  3. 办公费用$168,000.用于支付教学设备,场地租金,保险,网站开发与管理,教学辅助人员工资等。
  4. 学员子女未来大学入学储蓄金$200,000 (此数量年年累积,等孩子们到了入学年龄时,会根据实际入学的人数支付孩子学费。每5年可积累$1,000,000共50个孩子一年的$20,000的学费。随着孩子入学数量的增长,学院会向社会集资和向政府申请更多的项目支持孩子们上大学)。

汉巍学院通过各个社交平台和媒体发放招生简章。由汉巍学院指定审查委员会对申请人进行筛选。发放录取通知。

学员在家里学习。每天四小时学习时间。


Mothers as First Teachers Project

Facing reality and looking to the future:

The current policies and regulations in the United States cannot solve the realistic problems of the poor in the United States. These problems of the poor in the United States accumulated over history and are more and more difficult to solve. The various relief programs, welfare programs, and educational resource-sharing programs are fundamentally difficult to solve. As a non-profit organization, the Life Renewing Center proposes that the solution to realistic problems needs to start from now so that current problems will not happen in the future. Our goal is to make the streets of the future less criminal and more useful. That is to say, with one more child in good physical and mental health today, one less person will go to prison in the future. The highest goal is to make the future of the United States truly realize the ideals put forward by the American fathers in the Constitution and make the United States a paradise for people to enjoy freedom, equality, and happiness, and live in safety and harmony. To this end, Life Renewing Center launched the “Mother as the First Teacher” project.

The “Mother as the First Teacher” project is specifically planned and implemented by Hanwei College under the Life Renewing Center. It will be carried out on three levels (junior and high school adolescents, primary school children, and preschool children). Currently, it is mainly conducted at the level of junior and high school adolescents. The other two levels of classes will be launched later.

American Young Mother Educational Ability Training Course

Adolescence is a special period in life development. In this important life stage, the role of the mother cannot be ignored. But because single mothers lack funds, time, living conditions, and methods, they cannot provide the needed growth environments for their children. The training course will provide the necessary training for teenage mothers, provide effective and scientific methods of education and management of their children, and cooperate with the school to guide young people to develop a positive outlook on life, professionalism, and social responsibility. The uniqueness of this project that makes it different from any previous ones lies in the following:

The first training course in the US targeting mothers on adolescent development.

All recruited mother students will enjoy a salary. The amount of salary will be sufficient to cover the rent/mortgage in a good school district and the living expenses of the entire family during the period while the mother is at school.

 Every mother’s child will automatically receive college tuition assistance for any one year during their future college years.

After a mother finishes her studies, she will not leave school. Instead, she will continue to report the current situation of her children to the school from time to time and continue to accept the guidance and consultation of the school until her children go to college.

After graduation, the mothers will be offered the opportunity to work as paid teaching assistants at Hanwei College. Hanwei College will also be responsible for recommending the graduates to the sponsoring companies of the college for employment or community service to support the graduates to continue living with their children in the school district and go to good schools. 

As a result, mothers will have enough time to accompany and take care of their children.

The target of enrollment includes low-income single mothers with children in middle and high school. If you are interested, please request a registration form from the Life Renewing Center at the following email: <info@liferenewingcenter.org>.

As we discussed in our Black vs White The Breakdown in Family Values article there are many contributing factors. It starts with black pregnancies that create single-parent households, that are more likely to live in a poverty or low-income situation. This low-income situation creates an environment that produces children that have a higher rate of dropping out of school or are more likely to engage in criminal behavior. Creating a repeating cycle of low-income single parent households that remain uneducated and more likely to commit crimes in the future.
