It has been our vision to travel with our youth. Many have never been out of their communities and don't realize that the world is theirs to explore and experience. Through the support of many in our community, we were able to take 13 of our girls to Ghana in 2017. With your support, we can continue to explore the world with our youth.
In 2018, we envision traveling to Washington, D.C. with both SONS and Blueprint for Womanhood participants to visit NASA and the Smithsonian African American Museum.
LIfe Paradigms provides alternative pathways through innovative and engaging programs offered annually to African American youth. Our programs place an emphasis on global citizenship, social justice, mental and emotional development and STEAM.
Through a collaborative partnership with STRONG Ties, 13 African American girls traveled to Ghana, West Africa in July 2017 where they fostered dialogue with their African contemporaries and cultivated an awareness of their global responsibilities.
By leveraging technology, we enable global exchanges and conversations between middle and high school students who otherwise would not meet. These exchanges promote empathy, peace, and build 21st century workforce skills.
