Welcome to the Bloom Project Inc.

Bloom Project, Inc. is a not for profit organization that provides mentoring, service projects, college preparation, character building, and career exploration opportunities. We currently operate in Indianapolis & Ft. Wayne. It is our goal to prepare young males, ages 12-18, for secondary education and increase knowledge in their career paths. The name of the organization was created by the Founder and Executive Director, Arnetta Scruggs, in honor of her late grandfather, Ezell “Bloom” Stephens. The motivation of Bloom Project, Inc. is to continue the family legacy. Within the Bloom Project, Inc. organization, there are two established programs– the annual Kings Feast Symposium and the monthly mentoring workshops, Project King.

Areas Where We Focus

A mentor is a trusted adult friend with a long-term, consistent commitment to provide guidance and support to a youth. Formal Mentoring Programs are focused on supporting the relationship between mentor and youth (mentee) and developing the character and capabilities of the young person. At the most basic level a mentor is there to help the young person understand that they are valued by their community and were born with their own unique gifts and purpose. At the deepest level mentors stand by and guide young people when they suffer the challenges and initiations in their development.

Character Building
Bloom Project offers character building to the youth that we serve to help cater to their overall development as a teenager. Our programs are designed to build a diverse network of leaders resulting in a powerful ripple effect of inclusion throughout the community. We build leaders in the community through our programs focused on discrimination, entrepreneurship, relationships, and much more.

College Preparation
Bloom Project offers college preparation the youth we serve in a variety of ways. Primarily, we would like to take our youth out on annual college tours to get them exposed to a variety of colleges of their interest. We also strive to partner with local colleges, universities, and vocational schools who are willing to come to our mentoring workshops to provide information regarding their institution’s academic programs.

Service Projects
Bloom Project Inc. is committed to helping young people become part of the solution to societal problems by showing them how even their smallest actions can make a difference in the lives of others. We provide high-quality volunteer service experiences for our participants. We bring the field of service-learning to the community’s young people through the Project King Program to encourage community participation and engaged citizenship through direct service to homeless and hungry people.

Career Exploration
How do we expect young people to dream if they don’t know what they can dream about? Opportunities for career exploration give young people broader exposure to the working world they will one day enter. It helps them “connect the dots” between school and career in ways that keep them motivated to graduate with the skills they will need for the future. Bloom Project Inc. provides opportunities for our participants to improve their academic performance, improve their attitudes about their career possibilities and more…
