Robinson spearheads Children Uniting Nations’ new CUN2.0 program initiative, expanding on the organization’s 16 years of service to at-risk and foster youth.  CUN2.0 will focus its programming in academic mentoring through Music, Technology and the Arts.

“We believe that through academic arts mentoring, this develops the child's sense of importance, self esteem and competence,” said Robinson.

Celebrity mentors make a commitment of year to have a 1:1 positive mentoring relationship with students, participate in events, festivals and educational workshops.  CUN2.0 Celebrity Mentors include Christy and Todd Gibel from Lifetime Television's “Little Women of L.A.”
