Inspiring You To Greatness, Inc. 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation hosts educational seminars throughout the year in the areas of college education, financial literacy, and youth entrepreneurship.
Our Youth Entrepreneurship Inspired by the life-story of Pulitzer nominee Clifton Taulbert, Ice House Program is designed to empower participants by exposing them to entrepreneurial thinking while immersing them in entrepreneurial experiences developing critical thinking, problem solving, and better decision making choices based on specific mindset changes. Drawing on eight fundamental concepts, Ice House includes online video lectures that feature video “case studies” of successful everyday entrepreneurs with limited resources who succeeded by embracing an entrepreneurial mindset. Youth ages 12-17 had the opportunity to receive this youth entrepreneurship seminar last summer at the Frisco Public Library in three summer sessions. Last year’s sessions included: Saturday, March 5th-19th, April 2nd-16th, May 7th-21, or June 4th-18th, 2016. This year the sessions will be held at our Dallas and Plano offices for Dallas and Collin County participation.
Our Youth Literacy Financial Literacy is an important component to the young entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Learning how to budget, save money, and invest are the three points discussed in each youth literacy workshop. In the youth literacy boot camp, students are placed in groups to find solutions to problems using financial decision making. The youth literacy sessions immerse students in real life applications of financial literacy by allowing them to open savings accounts with local banks and credit unions on field trips before, after, or during the session.
Ways to help:
1. Financial Volunteers to educate youth at workshops, boot camps, and sessions.
2. Volunteers to assist in developing relationships and partnerships.
3. Visit our Volunteers Page to sign up as a Volunteer. (Background Checks are conducted.)
Our Youth Tutoring is an opportunity for students to connect with a College Student to assist them in the College Students’ area of expertise. In order to become a tutor a student must have at least a 3.5 GPA in college and must has graduated in the top 30% of their high school class. It is very important that our tutors possess a high level of self-discipline, self-esteem, and self-respect. Each tutor completes a full background FBI check through E-certify and several other sources as well as signs a confidentiality agreement to maintain the integrity of each student being tutored. Tutoring sessions take place via text, email, Skype, and in person at public libraries, Starbucks, and in study rooms at college campuses.
