S.T.E.M.A. Learning Center

People Helping Each Other (PHEO) helps move the dream of Pastor Frederick Demps closer to reality.........

A building designed and built for a charter and technical school, including a full gymnasium, fitness center, Olympic size indoor heated swimming pool and chapel was secured through PHEO in Palatka, Florida.  The approximately 70,000 square feet under roof facility with adjacent acreage will serve as an example for implementing a self-help strategy for Indigenous Africans and the Diaspora.

The facility, launched by the Pastor and members of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, faced the potential of the facility being lost through no fault of the Church.  A large contractor, who failed to finish the interior of one section of the building, created an issue with a financial institution that caused the church to teeter on the brink for nearly five years.

In August 2013, PHEO and Calvary, secured a permanent affordable mortgage that allows PHEO to establish a STEMA (Science, Tecnolagy, Enginering, Math and Arts) charter school, beginning at the 4th grade level and ending at 12th grade completion, where at least half of each new class will be Indigenous Africans.

The Indigenous Africans and Diaspora will receive lodging, meals, education and travel once a year to their home country or city, at no cost to them.  This project is designed to include a business management track, via project based learning.  By the end of the 12th year, successful students will be issued stock ownership in a business in their home country or city, earned via sweat equity, while they attend the charter school.  PHEO, through a partnership with the Diversity program at the University of Central Florida, will create a pipeline of students for the UCF’s School of Engineering.
