P.A.M. Media Outreach nine-week leadership program develops leadership skills and problem solving with multiple Inner-City and Urban high school youth. The methodology of P.A.M. Media Outreach program for 2020-2021 school year is to gather ten youth leaders from multiple Inner-City and Urban High Schools, which will include challenged youth to integrate with youth from different organizations within the school to teach them 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" virtually that is 100% student led, inclusive of all of the students that participated in the nine-week P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program.
P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program has a nine-week virtual curriculum. We will have our nine-week program virtually using Microsoft Teams platform. We will train the youth leaders on this platform to participate in a virtual classroom environment meeting. We will train these youth leaders how to organize and facilitate their Urban Communities Teen Summit also virtually using Microsoft Teams platform.
The focus of P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program is to concentrate on the challenged Inner-City and Urban high school youth to implement a team environment with their peers they normally do not have any association with at school. P.A.M. Media Outreach Leadership Program shares with the youth leaders that positive teamwork, respect and support the school administrators, positive feedback, youth leader empowerment and the results of their leadership skills transitioning to facilitate and organize an Urban Communities Teen Summit.
The objective of the “Urban Communities Teen Summit” is to empower our High School Youths in the different geographical urban areas that may not have opportunities like others in the San Antonio areas. The objective is to have the youth leaders to organize a youth summit at their school and in their immediate community. These students will be addressing some especially important issues in their community with some key groups, i.e. local Community Law Enforcement Representatives, Business Owners, Psychologists with bullying in mind, Educators (high school and colleges), Ministers, and Peers. The outcome of the summit will be the “Call to Action” that will help build a process of bringing their community and other sectors together to build on a relationship and partnership with each other. We are starting grassroots’ initiatives to a new approach to aim to reduce the violence and engage in empowering our youth in the high crime areas.
We are wanting to make sure that we empower these youths to make a difference in their school’s communities, as well as the surrounding communities. These youths will be addressing the following subjects through various panelists:
We estimate the summit will have 50-100 students participating the day of the "Urban Communities Teen Summit". The participants who are needing community service hours will get them for participating by joining their peers at the Summit. The panelists audience will be the H.S. students, parents and the local community. This has worked to get the students to participate with our community leaders, plus support the youth leaders that are 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 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 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 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!
