100 Years From Now functions as an 8 week summer law boot camp where students are exposed to legal course work, projects on financial literacy, cultural history, economics and community building strategies, Internships and Enrichments. Three of those weeks will be spent in an internship program where students will be able to apply the knowledge from the classroom to the real-world. This experiences will provide an opportunity to work on soft skills and hard skills needed in the workplace.
Our enrichments are educational based classes that are used to recognize, nurture, and develop the gifts and talents of all students.
The classes will address student interests, and broaden their learning experience through disguised learning .
Our internship program is designed to enable students to advance their professional preparation through work experiences which complements the course work in the program.
The benefit of the internship experiences are: development of task skills in a specific functional area; diverse real-world organization-based experience in a work environment; development of interpersonal and professional skills in the work place; the opportunity to evaluate academic theory versus practice; and increased understanding of potential jobs and career opportunities.
Our goal is to educate parents on how to aid their student through the program while providing resources.
Parent University resources will include but are not limited to educational courses covering a broad range of topics such as, parenting skills, child development, learning modalities, intellectual development, and communication.
The aforementioned courses will not only help parents understand their students personality and how to assist them through the program but we will also be able to encourage parents to be the most effective parent they can be!
