Changing the Face of STEM by Exposing Youth to their Potential
REACHING THE COMMUNITY
Changing Faces, Inc., James Coleman (Mentors For The Kids Foundation), Christie's Sports & Philanthropy Strategy Group, and the Freedom Train Network have partnered up to host a FREE three day STEM in Sports Camp titled ”The Playbook: How STEM, Sports, and Life Skills Intersect”. The 3-Day Virtual Camp will take place August 19-21.
We are excited to have several athletes (current/past), STEM professionals, and educators with backgrounds in areas that relate to both STEM and Sports join us to expose, educate, and engage our youth about life skills (fitness, nutrition, health and wellness, financial literacy, and even entrepreneurship) needed to succeed on and off the field, track, and court.
Youth athletes from Tallahassee, FL, surrounding counties (Gadsden, Wakulla, Jefferson), and the Maryland, DC, and Virginia area are welcome to register. Register by Saturday, August, 6 to secure a spot!
Changing Faces Inc. joined Color in STEM LLC, the Florida State University Iota Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, several student and local community organizations in Tallahassee, Florida, and the FAMU SCALAR HBCU-UP project to create culturally diverse classroom libraries in local Leon County Title I Schools. Over 500 culturally diverse books were donated. It's so important for students to see themselves in the books they read. Dr. A. and Dr. Tay served as guest readers for the STEM literacy read aloud at Pineview Elementary.
Changing Faces Inc. partnered with P.E.O. Chapter GR, Dr. La'Tara Lampkins, Founder of Eduprehd, Kayana Gaines Realty, the Florida State University Iota Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Color in STEM LLC, and several members of the Tallahassee, Florida community to provide school supplies to thirty six Pre-K through 5th grade and ESE classrooms at Bond Elementary School, Kindergarten teachers at Oakridge Elementary School, Boys Town of North Florida - an organization dedicated to children and families in foster care, and Capital City Youth Services (CCYS) - an organization that works with homeless, runaway, and at risk youth. School supplies were also donated to the 5th grade Science, Math, and Reading teachers at Pineview Elementary School and the Mnazi Moja Primary School in Kenya, Africa. We hope that these supplies will serve as a reserve for teachers and kids in Leon County, FL. throughout the academic year!
