In its first year, the Yorklyn StoryTelling Festival reached over 2000 students and teachers at no cost to them. It is an invitation to literacy and to share stories across age groups, and cultural and socio-economic lines.
When we invite students to the room of learning through their actual gifts and intelligences…music, art, spatial reasoning, kinesthetic, math, and language, it builds a fire in their hearts because they know they are good at that.
Of those 5,985 will be Hispanic and 3,234 will be black.
Education is the key to social and economic equity. We leverage funding and resources to create and strengthen projects that are sustainable and beneficial to communities, schools, organizations, and individuals.
Social equity is grounded in the ideals of justice and fairness. We have proven summer program models to help prepare children for success by creating tracks to different schools and futures.
Social capital is a key component in any economic equity solution. Social and economic equity are goals we advocate for in school districts, community centers, churches, institutions and leadership.
Help change the future of the future generation!
