PROJECT LAUNCH
Power Up is just the beginning.
We believe that pairing mentorship with project-based, skill-focused learning will help prepare our mentees to be future leaders. The Project Launch program includes 4 workshops, our "Missions", that help mentees build hard and soft skills likely not taught in a traditional classroom. We focus on practical skills that are corequisite in STEAM and other fields, and take mentees through a carefully constructed, hands-on curriculum to build these skills. We equip our mentees with a variety of tools, from hard skills like coding, designing and video editing, to soft skills like working in teams, ideating and sending professional emails. We empower our mentees to be lifelong learners, and teach growth mindset as a tool to help out mentees learn new skills and tackle difficult challenges in the future.
