FREE youth scholars program: GRADE 1-5.
Open only to the first 30 students: APPLY TODAY!
Today more than ever our children are having a difficult time in school due to limited resources, and many are struggling with self-esteem and self-worth issues.
Research suggest that regular participation in non-traditional programs can provide academic and social activities, and contribute positively to children’s academic and social development.

Talent is Everywhere, we have to figure out how to develop it. The series will revolve around the story of “Uncle Jeb’s Barbershop.” Sarah Jean’s Uncle Jed was the only black barber in the county. He had a kind heart and a warm smile. And he had a dream. Living in the segregated South of the 1920’s, where most people were sharecroppers. Uncle Jed had to travel all over the county to cut his customers’ hair. He lived for the day when he could open his very own barbershop. But it was a long time, with many setbacks, from five-year-old Sarah Jean’s emergency operation to the bank failures of the Great Depression, before the joyful day when Uncle Jed opened his shiny new shop — and twirled a now grown-up Sarah Jean around in the barber chair. With James Ransome’s richly colored paintings brimming with life, this is a stirring story of dreams long deferred and finally realized.
The purpose of this story is to explore what it takes to become an entrepreneur. What a person must go through to bring his or her dreams to fruition. After reading and discussing this story our Young Scholars will begin to explore their personal gifts, talents, and interests and then decide upon a business they would like to start.
And entrepreneurial curriculum is rarely part of the formalized educational system in the USA. Harvard Graduate School of Education and the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship found that, “Youth who are taught about entrepreneurship show a positive change in attitude and strong success orientation and are more likely to be focused on academic and professional achievement, aspirations and leadership.”
Beverly Munir – Self-Esteem, tolerance, confidence building, and empathy with a Valentine theme Love is in the Air. Therefore, the self-esteem building lesson will be integrated with loving self and others. The Self-Esteem lesson includes some of the qualities one would have that demonstrate self-esteem and low self-esteem. The Young Scholars after definition of self and low esteem will identify the one that best describes them most of the time. Also, the self-esteem lesson will provide some of the benefits of having good self-esteem. This interactive lesson will include art work, writing (making a list of things you do well, and most of all turning “I can’t into “I can.” Thus, in keeping with Gretchen’s theme I feel this part is very important where they can “explore their personal gifts and talents.” Of course, depending on the needs of the Young Scholars each Saturday some subjects, activities will be added for a more fun filled Saturday.
