NEXT Steps Launches "The Power Of Perception" Speaker Series -- Specifically For At-Risk Youth

The Power of Perception Speaker Series is a communication tool designed to help at-risk students understand the challenges that are stacked against them – starting with a shockingly honest discussion about how “society” perceives them. Witness the immediate empowerment and transformation of these students as they tap into their passions and define their life’s purpose. The final result comes in a written mission statement – in their own handwriting – that helps them develop a plan with laser-like focus on how they will pursue their careers and accomplish their educational goals and entrepreneurial ventures.
PART II: C.I.G.S. SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR PROGRAM
The Community Involvement Growth Strategy (C.I.G.S.) social entrepreneur program takes each student’s mission statement and applies it, in real time, to real world situations and environmental issues. With applications of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (S.T.E.M.) and urban agriculture, we teach students how to analyze and use the resources available to them “in their own backyards” – equipping them with the tools they need to engage in economic and community development activities that directly and positively impact their neighborhoods.
