The Student Athlete Mentoring Program (S.T.A.M.P) founded in 2009, is the dba of IDentity Theft Resource Center Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, created to empower students and athletes with better math, reading, athletic skills. Our mission continues to be to increase high school graduation rates, create and support student’s dreams of attending higher learning institutions and ultimately promote self-worth and good citizenship among our youth.
The S.T.A.M.P. participants range in grade levels 3rd through 12th. The majority of the students are challenged to pass state and other standardized test for grade promotion and high school graduation. Our student and athletes receive instruction from certified teachers and coaches who are dedicated and convinced that they can impact the lives of our children. Students participating in S.T.A.M.P. primarily reside in West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach with the majority of the students being “at-risks” youth from local communities.
While our mission is to empower students and athletes with the necessary tools to succeed both academically and athletically. We also mentor, guide and assist our participants with becoming more self-aware and with understanding their value through tools that support personal development, life-skills, goal setting and dream building. By implementing a support system that our youth can rely on in the time of crisis, disappointments and challenges we have created many success stories. From students with troubled backgrounds who go on to college to students earning full athletic scholarships in their desired sport, S.T.A.M.P. has truly made an impact in Palm Beach County.
S.T.A.M.P. provides an environment designed to attract and maintain youth involvement as well as increase personal development and promote excellence in all areas.
