Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to prepare preschool African American and Latino children for elementary school and beyond with the knowledge of STEM Education.

Our strategy is to educate and empower preschool African American and Latino children with the knowledge of STEM Education. This will be accomplished by engaging them in hands-on STEM-related activities twice a week in two 30-minute sessions.

Currently, I am solely running my nonprofit organization. In the near future, I hope to have the staff and resources to prove that I am capable of succeeding at my goal for this program.

I have successfully completed a 4 week Pilot Program at A Time to Love Learning Center in Arlington, Tx.
