Save Our Schools for Our Kids Foundation is a Summer/After School hybrid Career Pathways program for at-risk school-aged children to bridge the severe learning losses by preparing these children and youth for authentic career and business development opportunities.
Our wrap-around culturally competent career preparation and personal, professional, and business development training courses engage students experiencing socio-economic and educational shortfalls.
We call ourselves a University of Actionable Learning (Learning by doing). We employ our virtual, hybrid instructive platforms to supply the best educational, financial literacy, leadership, life skills, and social tools for a child to learn. Urban and rural students from these communities denied access are given gainful opportunities for a self-sustaining and brighter future.
Our career pathway academies address basic human needs for food and educational supplies.
50.7 million students returned to the classroom to start the 2022-2023 public school year experiencing a significant academic deficit, particularly in Math, English, Reading, and Science. Student enrollment declined significantly across all racial demographics.
We subscribe to a multiple intelligence approach interdependently taught and/or fused in for students to have the greatest opportunity to become wholly educated and prepared for life. These multiple intelligences are Verbal-Linguistic, Logical-Mathematic, Spatial, Musical, Physical, Interpersonal/Social, Intrapersonal/Emotional Intelligence, Naturalistic Intelligence, Creative Intelligence, Spiritual Intelligence (Gardner, H, 1983).
To reach, connect and fully engage students to become more curious about the world, more confident about their ability to freely learn, and become adept with academic competencies to gainfully meet a highly competitive world, SOS4OK believes schools must reach and teach students according to their intelligence strengths that can also be strengthened for total student benefit.
With these concepts, educators, parents, and guardians bear the responsibility of helping a student lead a richer and fuller life. Developing or enhancing curriculum, creating programs, and producing or giving storytelling experiences in the physical classroom or virtually will support a process towards student flourishing.
For schools to flourish to teach generations of children how to thrive, grow and succeed, we strongly believe there must be a massive shift to a school learning environment that transforms how administrators and educators think, feel, and make sense of their world vis-à-vis the student.
Educating our children is a collaborative process. It is culturally adept and agile. SOS4OK believes a vertical learning approach allows the student to make sense of their learning at a pace according to their intelligence as well as how they see and will see the world.
