NOUS AIMONS LES JEUNES!

 

 

We love our youth! So last month, our affiliate humanitarian organization, Change Rocks Foundation, had a special opportunity to lead the first annual Gospel Youth Summit in Lille, France. During founder Yewande Austin's visit, she produced leadership workshops for youth from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and an organizational leadership workshop for Congolese students leaders from Lille University. Austin concluded the trip with 2 live concerts for local music lovers. Au revoir!

RISE, VIRGINIA!

Our affiliate, Change Rocks Foundation, recently launched R.I.S.E. (Restoring Inspiration through Science and Artistic Expression) with Virginia Commonwealth University. The 2-week pilot taught urban high school students core STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) subjects and leadership skills through music and the arts. Participants learned how to create solutions to real-world problems while preparing for academic success. Through this integrated arts curriculum, nearly 1/3 of students increased test scores in upwards of 20% in Science and 30% in Math!
