USC to expand The Haven later this month

first_imgFormerly just a residential program, student recovery community The Haven will expand per university request with the opening of The Haven Center in the Office of Religious Life this month.The community provides support for students seeking help with substance abuse issues. The Haven offers group or individual sessions with USC alum and Program Director Nick Techentin, as well as peer support and events created by fellow students in recovery.University professors, administrators, parents and alumni will join in providing services and treatment for substance abuse where The Haven residential community is located in University Gateway. The Haven will establish a physical base on campus for the tight-knit community that lives in The Haven, as well as its external community of students seeking substance abuse support.Nearly one out of five young adults ages 18 to 25 suffers from a substance abuse problem. In response to the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s call to expand recovery support services on college campuses, the nation has seen rapid growth in collegiate recovery communities. USC is establishing itself as a leader in this movement, providing both residential and extended services for students through The Haven and The Haven Center.“We began last year with very few people and a couple of allies at USC who were interested in helping create this,” co-founder Holly Sherman said. “We are now reaching out to the greater USC student community, even people who are just starting to look at their drug use [and] alcohol use, and thinking that maybe they’re overdoing it a little.”Sherman and fellow co-founder Sharon Weber run The Haven with their team of collaborators, known as Recovery Grads.In a college setting where parties are littered with drugs and alcohol, early treatment could prevent dangerous habits from turning into a lifelong dependencies. Though many students at The Haven said they overcame dangerous addictions, others use the community as a safe place where they can get through school without drinking.“I came to USC, and that’s really where my drug and alcohol problems began,” said Techentin, who is 12 1/2 years sober. “The word needs to get out that it’s okay. This problem exists, and there’s ways to treat it and live life and have fun and not have to hide off in some rehab or leave the school out of shame. You can coexist in the collegiate environment and stay sober.”Ten students currently live in The Haven’s residential community, with several more slated to move in this January. The Haven utilizes weekly individual wellness plans created in collaboration with Techentin, community gatherings and service work. It also addresses optional tutoring sessions, sober outings, retreats and more.Almost all of The Haven’s services are free. For students who are not sure about entering the recovery program, The Haven hosts meetings every Sunday on the roof of Gateway at 6 p.m. Attendees do not need to be sober nor in a recovery program to show up.last_img read more

An August Tradition Returns to Navesink Next Week

first_imgBy Eileen Moon This year’s fair will takeplace for three nights, Aug.8 through 10 from 5:30 11 p.m. At the Navesink Hook & Ladder Company in Middletown, that means it’s time to get ready for the annual old-fashioned Navesink Country Fair, an event that the firehouse has been holding for 131 years. But before they do wehave a few more weeks tosavor the joys of anothersummer. The fire company was established in 1886, with the fair following three years later. It is believed to be the oldest fireman’s fair in New Jersey, company members said. Many of those who help out at the fair aren’t official members of the fire company but simply want to help an event that has become a beloved tradition. “We couldn’t do this if it wasn’t for the support of the community,” Chesek said. “It really is a group effort.” The fair also features rides on the company’s antique fire truck, which was sold to another company years ago and then bought back for a dollar once its firefighting days were done. Now the fire truck bears antique plates and the fair is its time to shine. “The town contributesquite a bit to what we do, butit doesn’t cover everything,”Chesek said. There are 60 members ofthe fire company, includinga number of life memberswho are no longer active. Ittakes about 12-18 membersto set up and run the fair.Funds raised from the eventhelp the fire company affordsome extras, like keepingthe Little League fields onthe firehouse grounds ingood condition. But don’t expect to ride the Tilt-a-Whirl or the Ferris wheel at this fair – while there will be plenty of fun to go around, it’s a proudly old-fashioned event, says fair chairman Russell Mount, who has been volunteering at the fair since childhood. “We’ve kept it in the tradition of an old-time fair,” said Mount, who is also deputy chief of the Middletown Fire Department. “It’s rare that we get three perfect nights,” Chesek said. But in the unwelcome event that the weather doesn’t cooperate, the fire company knows how to go with the flow. “We’re always open for the food and the gift auction.” Chesek’s son, Matt, 7, is already volunteering at the fair, helping with the many chores that go along with running a world-class fair kitchen that turns out some 300 orders a night for lobster, fried shrimp, fried clams, fried chicken, soft-shell crabs, fried eggplant, corn and all the fixings – not to mention the humbler but no less beloved fair staples like hot dogs. Chesek, who is in charge of the kitchen operation, inherited the job from his uncle, who ran it for 30 years. He and his team of volunteers source all of the seafood from local vendors and pick up eggplants, corn and other fresh produce each day from a farm in Matawan. Volunteers then get to work peeling the eggplant, shucking the corn and doing all the other preparations before the fair opens at 5:30. By 6 p.m., Mount said, there’s a line waiting for dinner. The gift auction is a major part of the fair’s fundraising effort. Mount’s wife Jean and Chesek’s wife Andrea are in charge of soliciting the donations for the event and creating the gift baskets that reflect the generosity of dozens of businesses in the Middletown area. The goodies contained in the baskets run the gamut, ranging from restaurant gift certificates, tools, appliances and wines to gift cards, getaway weekends and even rum, straight from the Caribbean via the locally-based Shipwreck Rum Company. Along with its celebration of tradition, the fair has added a few innovations, including a beer and wine garden and live bands introduced in recent years to great success. Thursday is Firemen’s Night, when local companies compete in a bucket brigade contest. “Local vendors donate $500 in fire equipment to the team that wins first place,” Mount said. The firehouse acquired the train from an amusement park in 1968, said Navesink Hook & Ladder Company president Matt Chesek, who is a fourth generation member of the fire company. “It’s pretty unique. It’s nothing too big. The train goes around in a circle on tracks that are on the fairgrounds,” Chesek said. Games at the fair are a little different from the Vegas-style roulette wheels some fairs spin. As it has for generations, the fair offers a nickel toss game. And when the wheel spins at the vegetable stand, players pay 50 cents for wooden paddles that bear their numbers. The winners walk away with – yes – fresh vegetables, as well as steaks, lobster and other feastables worth taking a chance on. The rides the fair offers are geared to children and pre-teens, and while there are some modern touches like inflatable bouncy games and a rock climbing wall, families return year after year to let their kids ride the Old Cannonball train. “We rely on our donorsfrom different businessesthroughout town,” Mountsaid. “It’s quite a bit of work.” We know the days of bare feet and bike rides, fireworks and fairs, will soon recede like the warm tides of the summer ocean. Preparations for the fair got a bit of a late start this year due to the heavy rains in late July that delayed the setup by a few days. Now it’s up to the weather gods to smile on the fair’s three-day run next week. When summer ripensinto August, the pleasuresit brings take on a specialsweetness.last_img read more

Bombers rebound to grab Bronze Medal at AA Girl`s Soccer Championships

first_imgTears of disappointment were replaced with ear-to-ear grins after the L.V. Rogers Bombers posted a 2-0 victory over Arch Bishop Carney of Vancouver in the Bronze Medal Match Saturday at the BC High School AA Girl’s Soccer Championships Saturday at the Lakeside Fields.Sofia Arcuri scored a header in the second half to break a scoreless tie lifting the Bombers to the victory, and the school’s second medal in as many years.In 2016, LVR defeated St. Thomas Moore in shootout to claim the Provincial Crown. However, this year the Knights of Burnaby had the last laugh, not only eliminating the Bombers from a run a two consecutive Provincial Titles Friday, but also edging Okanagan Mission of Kelowna 1-0 in the Championship final to capture the 2017 Banner.Saturday, it took a lot of intestinal fortitude for the Bombers to grind out this victory.Despite looking fatigued from playing its fifth game in three days, the Bombers managed to get through the first half unscathed.Then in the second half, Arcuri got on the end of an Emily Taylor cross to head the ball into the net through a maze of players.LVR added some insurance with time running out in the game after the Arch Bishop Carney keeper was called for a foul outside the 18-yard-box.After the keeper was served up a red card for the infraction, Taylor stepped up to the ball to score the game’s final goal on the free kick.Hanna Quinn once again finished with a clean sheet, the fourth of the tournament for LVR — which only surrendered one goal in the entire tournament.Most of the players on this team will now flip the switch over to Nelson Youth Soccer Rep program to push for a Provincial B Cup medal.last_img read more

UK’s Pearson invests in SA education

first_img23 November 2010UK-based multinational publishing and education company Pearson plc is to acquire a 75% stake in South Africa’s CTI Education Group for £31-million (about R347.7-million) in cash, as part of its plans to expand in the southern African region.The transaction will strengthen Pearson’s position as a leading education company in southern Africa, and also makes allowance for Pearson to acquire the remaining 25% stake in CTI in three years’ time.Pearson international education business CEO John Fallon said the company was excited to enter the local market and meet a growing demand for high-quality, career-advancing higher education in South Africa and the region.“We are deeply impressed by the quality of CTI’s business and the commitment of its management and staff to produce excellent outcomes for students, and we look forward to this new partnership with them,” Fallon said in a statement this week.“Pearson’s worldwide range of content, curriculum and digital tools will help CTI broaden its range of courses and degrees, and our marketing capacity will enable CTI to reach more students across the African continent.”CTI is a higher education institution with more than 9 000 students on 12 campuses, and offers diplomas and degrees in subjects as business, information technology, law, psychology and counselling, graphic design and creative arts.These include degrees accredited by both the South African Council of Higher Education and the British Accreditation Council; degrees offered in partnership with UK universities such as the University of Wales and Heriot-Watt University; and diplomas and vocational qualifications including BTECs from Pearson.

GEM looks to bring hope to vulnerable children

first_imgGEM is getting its volunteers to help feed and play with the kids of Ethembeni Children’s Home in Johannesburg. (Image: Youtube: Salvation Army Vision Network)By Ray MaotaA children’s home in the heart of Johannesburg that offers refuge for children infected or affected by HIV/Aids is getting a helping hand from a group running a mobile app for volunteers.GEM (Go the Extra Mile), the mobile rewards platform for volunteers, is getting South Africans to help out at Ethembeni Children’s Home in Doornfontein, Johannesburg. Ethembeni, meaning “place of hope” in isiXhosa, was established by the Salvation Army in 1995 and is home to as many as 60 children from birth to three years old.David Shields, co-founder of GEM, said volunteers from all walks of life gathered to do their bit for the home. “They will be helping out at the home, whether it’s playing with the children, helping to feed them, taking care of general maintenance and once that is done they receive their GEMs.”The activation was one of six throughout Johannesburg on Saturday, 7 May.GEM AND PLAY YOUR PART ‘GO HAND IN HAND’GEM’s relationship with Play Your Part started with a phone conversation between Shields and Brand South Africa’s strategic relationship manager for business, Rodney Moloko. This led to the app’s first 10 activations, on Mandela Day last year.“Since then we have grown in leaps and bounds. I would like to think GEM and Play Your Part go hand in hand as GEM helps people physically play their part,” said Shields.The turnout varies from activation to activation as volunteers tend to go to places closer to them. “We choose the establishments to help whether or not they fit the GEM profile, which is quite stringent. The place has to be safe, warm and welcoming and some organisations don’t fit those criteria.”SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP RISINGShields believes the millennial generation has seen what their fathers and forefathers have done to the country and how the entire capitalist system is bloated.“There is no way that people can keep making money for themselves without caring for others, the environment or the animals. We have seen the after effects of this and now we want to do well by doing good.“With the rise of the internet and other technologies we have more information than our parents and so we are more consciously aware of what it takes to make a change.”FUTURE OF GEMShields said: “We have actually started on working on benefits for GEM users. At the moment we are developing a USSD trivia quiz where users can log on and answer questions and by doing such, earn GEMs.“In the next six months to a year we would like to get into the banking sector by catering for the unbanked people of South Africa.”last_img read more

SA sets aside R10bn for student loans, bursaries

first_img14 January 2015The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) had earmarked R9.5-billion in bursaries and loans for 2015, an increase from the R8.3-billion set aside in 2014, said Blade Nzimande, the higher education and training minister.The NSFAS would fund 205 000 first-time entering and continuing eligible students at universities and 200 000 students at technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges, he said in Pretoria on 12 January.“One of the most successful schemes established by government to assist students from poor disadvantaged families with academic ability is the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, which provides loans and bursaries to students at all 26 public universities and 50 public TVET colleges throughout the country.“In 2014, NSFAS provided student loans and bursaries totalling over R8.3-billion, which excluded the once-off allocation of R1-billion for the servicing of the 2013 shortfall of R700-million and 2014 shortfall of R300-million,” he said.In addition to the NSFAS funding, the National Skills Fund (NSF) would step in to make further allocations to students who would be studying towards critical skills programmes that were most needed for the growth of the economy.“NSFAS has been allocated over R562.9-million for bursaries for scarce and critical skills for the current year from the NSF. This funding is made available through the financial aid offices in universities and students wishing to make use of these bursaries are advised to enrol for critical skills, which include science, commerce, health science, [and] engineering.”His department was committed to expanding access to and success in institutions of higher learning for students who had special needs. At TVET colleges, the government paid 80% of the programme cost of the disabled student’s choice, with an additional allocation being made dependent on the type and severity of the disability.In addition, NSFAS had earmarked R69.3-million in the 2015 academic year to provide financial aid to disabled students in universities, Nzimande added.Apply early for tertiary studiesIt was important for matriculants to be proactive and to apply for admission as early as possible, Nzimande said, adding that it was always a challenge if Grade 12 learners passed their exams without admission as previous practices, such as walk-in applications, had long been abolished.To help pupils submit their applications on time, his department, in collaboration with the Department of Basic Education, had launched the “Apply now” campaign to create awareness of career options, study opportunities and application procedures for post-school education and training.This campaign complemented the Career Development Services Helpline – on 0860 356 635 – and Khetha radio programmes, which ran on 10 SABC African languages radio stations, including Afrikaans; social media platforms; and career awareness events.“The National Career Advice Portal provides access to career information on career pathways, occupations and relevant education and training opportunities,” he said. His department was operating the Central Application Clearing House once again in 2015.The clearing house call centre and website went live on 2 January. “The. service has been developed to assist learners who qualify for higher education studies, have applied for a space at an institution, but have not been offered a place at the institution of their choice after the matric results are released.“It is also accessible to those learners who did not apply before the closing dates last year and now find that they are eligible for higher education studies. Learners looking for spaces in the university education system can contact the toll free call centre on 0800 356 635 or send an SMS with their name, ID and contact number to 49200, and they will be telephoned back free of charge,” he said.SANewslast_img read more
