Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sisu Academy is the first all-girls tuition-free, boarding high school, with an embedded incubator fueled by entrepreneurs and seed capital creating an immersive learning environment that funds all operational costs. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit for public good working to bring innovative education to San Diego Students in need.
Sisu is a four-grade high school that will enroll and house a total of 350 young women from the local community in Southern California. Providing an environment with wraparound support services for those in need, including healthy food, farming, project-based learning, skills training, STEAM education and counseling. All of these programs will be viewed through an entrepreneurial lens to address social and business-related challenges impacting both the students and the community at large. We will teach students to embrace failure as a catalyst for growth and future success. These efforts will also provide the revenue-creating structures allowing Sisu to sustain its model.
Enrollment at Sisu will be at no cost to the student. Program fit and a student’s need will be what matters. Although we are an independent school, we believe in continuing to support public education. Starting with a smaller freshman class of young women in the 2018-19 school year, each year we will add more students, reaching a full capacity of 350 students in five years. We are beginning as an all-girls school while leaving the door open for future projects that can also impact young men from our community.
