KEEP YOUR CROWN UP
A series of workshops that reminds young people of their royalty, and the responsibility that comes with it. Our young people engage in interactive discussions and games to discover their superpowers. We connect them to educators and entertainers that find creative ways to motivate and inspire them. Our goal is to support them in growing into the heroes we know them to be, and not the villains that society will try to make them. In addition, we offer them strategies to heal from what they’ve been through as they discover new ways to love themselves and others.
ROYAL BY NATURE: Summer of Soulcial Discovery
Royal By Nature connects the leaders of tomorrow with the safe space they need to cultivate their skills and discover their purpose, so they can live healthy and fulfilling lives. Our goal is to connect young people living in West and Southwest Philly to Bartram’s Gardens to work, learn, serve, and grow. Young people work side by side with the children they serve to grow food, fish, and connect with nature and each other. In addition, they take courses designed to holistically educate, empower, and inspire them. They develop a sense of pride in the natural, artistic, and creative work they produce that will reinforce their confidence in and out of the classroom. This year we have partnered with Richard Allen Preparatory Charter School to provide young leaders between the ages of 8 and 13 with virtual and in person classes.
Bustlenomics (business of hustling and economics) teaches young people how to set financial goals for themselves and their community. While raising those funds, they strengthen their mathematics and 21st-Century skills. The goal is to teach our royal future how to create their own opportunities to see the world as apart of themselves. We teach young people to break down their business plans into manageable tasks. Then we encourage young Kings and Queens to start building their empire one campaign at a time. Our use of project-based learning with PA Common Core standards, helps strengthen their entrepreneurial skills.
LITERACY, LIBERATION, & LEADERSHIP
We use a series of projects, trainings, games, and Socratic discussions to teach English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Civics. Our goal is to support the life long learners of today to be the leaders of tomorrow in and out of the classroom. Epictetus states that “only the educated are free”, so we liberate the minds of our young people so they can develop the skills to be the heroes their community needs.
CAMERAS CONVERTING COMMUNITIES
This program teaches scholars the step by step process of conceptualizing and developing their ideas into videos that get their message across. We've created PSA's, short films, and music videos to raise awareness on relevant topics they choose. Our goal is to equip young people with a skill that can spark interest in a career in media or technology while positively changing their communities.
