Okonta Solutions Youth Leadership Program - Grades 3rd to 5th.
The curriculum will be developed and teachers trained and supervised by Okonta Solutions on the implementation. Curriculum will comprise a beginning project that will culminate into a final proposal. The theme will be based around becoming responsible human beings and civic duty. Throughout the summer, campers will be given hands-on work to be accomplished that incorporates varying tasks or activities, that they choose from or come up with one on their own, designed to solve a problem/issue in their community or globally. At the finale, campers will display their ideas and pitch a solution, design, or campaign. A rubric will be designed for assessment of creativity and originality. This Leadership Program is an excellent way to teach children how to think out of the box. They will share ideas and showcase their work on BCPS' social media platform.
The program will run 60 -90 minutes, 6 weeks @ twice a week; and will be divided by grade level as follows:
3rd - 4th: Monday and Wednesday
5th: Tuesday and Thursday
Program begins July 5th
