VIRTUAL MENTOR PROGRAM

As much as we are vested in children learning the STEM
skill sets, we are equally proposing to develop their existing social justice leadership
LEADERSHIP is a critical role for Black boys to learn and model the knowledge
of science and caring for the environment and the planet.

SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The next generation is being deeply affected by the huge challenges of today’s times; a global pandemic, social and racial unrest, the climate crisis, an insurgency, economic devastation, war, and worst of all, isolation.
Maybe it’s a symptom of the times or maybe it’s a result of the problems they face… one way or the other, young people today have clarity. They have wisdom and ideas about how to build a more sustainable existence for humankind.
Youth will visit or talk to a GUEST SPEAKER or a community leader, Congressional Leaders, Colleges Campuses, Gardeners, and Farmers to learn about Environmental racism, climate Change, Agriculture, and Wildlife Conservation. Recycle and Reinvest will advance the goal of ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
From the food we eat to the cars we drive, we make choices every day that impacts our habitat, climate, families, and the consequences can be irreversible.
Systemic change begins with teaching about sustainability in all the places where we live, learn, and work.
Youth will help bridge the communication and infrastructure gap that results in large amounts of FOOD BEING WASTED by connecting food companies and their logistics partners with the nearest charity able to accept their surplus or unsaleable wholesome inventory.
Our FACILITATORS will explore FOOD WASTE, recycling, waste management, veganism, and how to embrace a low waste lifestyle.
