About

"Tomorrow's Roundtable" is a documentary film project with a mission to empower children to accelerate their own education. Our story follows the journey of seven "at-risk" 6th and 7th graders in San Francisco who are in a new learning accelerator invented by kids. It's called "15 SEEDS." Currently the students in 15 SEEDS are learning to build and run their own company. On this journey, they experientially learn topics including financial literacy, business development, management, and public relations. This is packaged inside a foundation of > Wellness > Restorative Justice > Academic Impact
