RETURNING TO OUR ROOTS
Affiliate partner, Change Rocks Foundation, recently launched the pilot of our new educational model R.I.S.E. (Restoring Inspiration through Science and Artistic Expression). The 2-week program will teach inner-city high school students core STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) subjects, histoy and leadership skills through music and the arts. By exploring the relationship between academia, personal skills and the arts, particpants will learn to create solutions to real-world problems in a safe environment while preparing for academic excellence!
