Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
Purpose: To empower students in grades 3-12 by helping them to set and achieve 3 S.M.A.R.T. goals and to develop effective study skills through weekly one-on-one interactions.
