POPS School Program

The POPS In-School Program was introduced to the public school system due to the lack of a positive professional male presence and budget cuts of activities. The program has become a requested program among middle schools, high schools, and organizations. POPS provides the voice, appearance, and support that many young men miss in schools and homes. Tarell Earl has become that role model that young men long to have in their lives. Through his persistence and not giving up on students, he has given these young men hope in believing that they can achieve more.

The program is taught for one school year. The class is taught weekly for one class period or agreed upon between school and the program. Each school's request may vary depending upon the needs of that particular school. Each class may vary in size ranging from 5 students, up to 20+ students. The program is usually taught in classrooms, conference rooms, day rooms, auditoriums, or available rooms provided by the school that can hold the capacity of students.

Students who are referred to the program are typically at-risk students, but not restricted to. Topics for the in-school program are chosen specifically for the school and student's educational success.

No Juvenile Left Behind

In the late Fall of 2016, the POPS Program began working as a youth advocate for youths with juvenile probation and court system offenses. Many of the youths that Tarell was representing was going to court without support from their families or going to court afraid of not knowing what will happen to them, Mr. Earl provided that support. By showing up on their behalf Tarell befriended the judges, probation officers, and court-appointed attorneys. Now when there is an at-risk youth in the courts, the probation officers and judges call upon Mr.Earl and the POPS Program for assistance. 

The United States incarcerates more of its youth than any other country in the world through the juvenile courts and the adult criminal justice system, which reflects the larger trends in incarceration practices in the United States. In 2010, approximately 70,800 juveniles were incarcerated in youth detention facilities alone. Approximately 500,000 youth are brought to detention centers in a given year. This data does not reflect juveniles tried as adults. Around 40% are incarcerated in privatized, for-profit facilities.

In 2024 the program is now open to teen girls.
