Our 2018-2019 Tools for Success Scholarship season is now open!
P4GYP is a co-ed life skills program focused on IT TAKES TWO, INC’s four pillars: bullying, financial literacy, college and career readiness, and youth entrepreneurship. It is geared toward 5th – 9th grade students to help them successfully handle their transformative years – middle school – as it sets the tone for high school and college.
Good stewardship is a leader's foundation. Community service and leadership are the foundation of this program. College admissions officers are looking for youth who are leaders and believe in giving back so we will depend on these concepts heavily in the program.
Fun, engaging, thought-provoking activities and outings held monthly that will help you and your child grow and make middle school and the start of high school a great experience.
We have guest speakers lined up who will encourage your child while tapping into their gifts, passions, and talents. Through P4GYP we plan to open their eyes to the possibilities while making sure they are socially and academically prepared.
The Positioned for Greatness Youth Entrepreneurship (P4GYEP) is open to youth 18 and under that have a sincere desire to start or grow their business and are committed to the process. We believe in legacy building. We also realize that life after school does not have to equate working for someone; therefore, youth entrepreneurship provides a pathway to a career that students will actually enjoy because their passion, interests, and natural talents will be the driving forces.
During this four-month program students will participate in activities that will transform their business idea into a viable business. They will learn how to:
· write a mission statement
· draft a business plan
· how to set a budget
· how to protect their brand…..among many other topics
All sessions will be held virtually with our P4GYEP Business Branding Coach, LeTonya Moore.
There is an opportunity to participate in a pitch competition.
The program launches on March 10, 2018.
The purpose of the IT TAKES TWO Reading Challenge is to promote reading, creative writing skills, critical thinking, and artistic expression in school aged children in grades four (4) through eighth (8) grade. Reading instruction and comprehension activities will be facilitated in class or after school program. At the completion of the book, students keep the books to add or create a home library and to encourage reading with other siblings.
IT TAKES TWO, INC will provide free books to participating classes to include after school programs and other programs facilitated by organizations in Anne Arundel, Prince George's County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Washington, DC.
A new service area will be added to align with ourTools for Success Scholarship program.
