Most schools focus on teaching skills and knowledge rather than building self-confidence. But we’ve found that most low-income families feel insecure because they lack confidence in themselves. They believe they cannot succeed in life. And without confidence, they will never reach their full potential.
If you want a school where children learn what it means to build confidence, then read on! We’re going to teach our kids to dream big dreams, and we’re going to help them make those dreams come true.
We believe that everyone deserves a shot at success, and we’re committed to giving every child the opportunity to believe he/she can do anything. So if you want your kid to become a confident person, then enroll him/her in our school.
The goal of the initiative is to help young people become leaders in their communities.
We are creating a space where we can learn together, ask questions, explore ideas and build skills.
Our vision is to provide free access to learning resources for youth and to encourage collaboration between schools, organizations, and families.
