In the summer of 2016, Crusading Outreach Ministry Inc. dba as More Than Words ARB, debuted a new signature program: the Young Achievers Excellence Program. (Click here to watch the WVEC interview.) Last year's program had two graduates who became young authors.
Best selling author, motivational speaker and entrepreneur Alesha Brown, The Joy Guru, created the program to teach youth creative writing, entrepreneurship, empowerment and advocacy. Children are taught how to take their dreams, passions as well as frustrations, and turn them into platforms of advocacy, expression and wealth creation. This innovative program takes a hands on approach using role playing, current trends and topics as well as small group sessions/activities to encourage active learning and real life responsibilities.
For the summer of 2017, Crusading Outreach Ministry Inc. is hosting its summer Young Achievers Excellence Program with long term community partner, C Waldo Scott Center for Hope. The 25 year non profit will participate in an hour long program, every Friday at C Waldo Scott from June 23rd to July 28th, starting at 11:15 pm. Fantastic Fridays are for kids age 6-12.
For more information or to register your child, please contact the center at (757) 244-9223. There is a small fee that includes this program and a series of other summer activities for your child.
Crusading Outreach Ministry Inc. works tirelessly in the community to empower those in need and provide them the tools and resources to equip them to live an optimum, healthy lives. It takes a village to raise a child and often parents, as well as children, suffer in silence because they don’t know how to ask for the help they need, where to go to receive or even how to recognize when they need help.

One woman is fighting to take back the streets of Newport News and she’s been on this journey for 25 years.
Deloris Pettaway founded Crusading Outreach Ministry Inc. 501 c 3, a non-profit designed to serve those who are economically disadvantaged and at risk, in December 1992. For over 22 years, she stood on many of Newport News VA’s street corners, providing a message of hope and giving out food, clothes and hygiene products to those in need. Flash forward: she has added programs for education, empowerment and entrepreneurship for at risk youth and disadvantaged citizens. She still offers food via the non-profit’s emergency food pantry as well as visits seniors in various nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout the Peninsula. Sometimes she receives calls in the middle of the night from program participants who are in dire need.
But she hasn’t stopped there. The 25 year old non-profit, which will celebrate its anniversary with a May 20th Black & White Gala at Newport News City Center’s Travinia Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, has several certified and nationally recognized programs for youth and parents of young children that it will relaunch within the next few months. (See Eventbrite or bit.ly/BlackAndWhiteGalaRSVP for details on how you can join the celebration.) But what this non-profit needs is what many local organizations need:
