P.A.M. Media Outreach's nine-week curriculum-based leadership program develops practicum leadership skills and problem-solving with multiple underserved Inner-City and Urban high school youth and now middle school youth. The methodology of the P.A.M. Media Outreach program for the 2023-2024 school year is to gather 10-15 youth leaders from multiple underserved inner-city middle and high schools. P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program will include challenged youth to integrate with youth from different organizations within the school to teach them practicum leadership and problem-solving skills. These sets of youth will become a team for nine weeks. The result of the nine-week program is to build upon each other as a team and organize and participate in their "Urban Communities Teen Summit," which is 100% student-led.
The P.A.M. Media Outreach Curriculum-Based Leadership Program focuses on the challenged, underserved inner-city middle and high school youth to implement a team environment with peers they usually do not associate with at school. P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program team shares with the youth leaders positive teamwork, respect, accountability, communication, and commitment to supporting the school administrators and their community to get positive feedback on their youth leadership empowerment—the results of their leadership skills transitioning to facilitate and organize an Urban Communities Teen Summit.
The P.A.M. Media Outreach “Urban Communities Teen Summit” empowers our middle and high school youth leaders to organize a youth summit for their immediate community. These youth leaders will address some fundamental issues in their community with key community leaders, i.e., local community law enforcement representatives, business owners, licensed professional mental health counselors, high school educators and administrators, ministers, and their peers.
The summit's outcome will be the “Call to Action” that will help build a process of bringing their community and other sectors together to build a relationship and partnership with each other. We are starting grassroots initiatives to a new approach to reduce community negativity and empower our youth in the high crime areas.
These youth leaders will address some of the following subjects through various community leaders:
· Law Enforcement
· Professional Development & Practices
· Mental Health Issues
· Youth Relations among peers
· School Administrators, e.g., Principals, Teachers, Counselors
· Personal Development
· Financial Education
We estimate the P.A.M. Media Outreach Urban Communities Teen Summit will have 150-200 students and parents participating. The participants who need community service hours will get them to participate by joining their peers at the Summit. The panelist's audience will be the H.S. students, parents, and faculty. This has worked to get the students to participate with our community leaders and support the youth leaders organizing the events.
The summit will give the High School Youths an opportunity to experience and be empowered to do the following:

Paula A. Monroe has dedicated her career to the underserved Inner-City and Urban high schools to teach these youth leadership skills. She has developed a program designed to empower our high school youth for nine weeks to engage in a strenuous curriculum and lesson plan tailored to their needs to build up their confidence, leadership skills, and self-esteem to become leaders in their communities. After they have completed their nine-week program, they are empowered to organize and participate in their very own P.A.M. Media Outreach Urban Communities Teen Summit designed especially for their school!
Paula’s compassion for our underserved Inner-City and Urban communities has gone beyond going to these schools, teaching them skills. She is now working on her Doctorate in Leadership Organization. She has dedicated herself to do extensive research on how effective P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership program can be in the underserved Inner-City and Urban high schools all over the country.
Paula’s first love is Christ! She and her lifelong partner and husband, Terry, have three beautiful children and four grandchildren, which are the love of their lives!
She is on a mission for God!
