Hi Moms
Summer is coming up! Are you looking for a unique experience for your highschooler. Check out this Social Entrepreneurship Camp at UCLA. Great camp to help them find their passion and put it into action to create a positive change! My son founded this organization when he was 14 yrs old after overcoming a speech impediment. He used his biggest weakness overcame it and turned it into a strength. Hope this helps some of you for ideas for the summer!

Congrats on your child going to Westpoint! Thats great! And your daughter- she sounds like a real go getter with great ambitious and drive.
Yes there are partial scholarships available based on financial need. My son doesnt like to turn away any students .
To answer your question about weather he followed any model , every summer since 8th grade we got him exposed to various camps debate, entrepreursip camps on the east ,leadership camps , sports camps etc. This lead him to create his organization. Throughout the last few years he has spent time studying best practices of organizations working in this space and have done many workshops in schools and have spoken to thousands of teens about the power of using their story to inspire empathy to drive change. As a mom it is such a good feeling to see teens taking action to create postive change!
