Tomorrow's Journey utilizes a simple concept, the use of art and cultural awareness, to inspire elementary,middle and high school aged girls to step outside of their comfort zones to seriously look at perceived barriers to reaching their full potential. They will learn through the use of our culturally responsive curriculum model, "Healthy Decision Making" and "My Black is Beautiful". This curriculum delivers information and activities to help young girls appreciate their history, culture and contributions of their ancestors, thereby building their self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence.
Tomorrow's Journey is a Learn and Earn business. Academic enrichment and incentives complement class activities. The Owner, Educational Consultant and Trainer has high expections, reasonable but high of the girl participants.
Tomorrow's Journey has been in existence since 2014 and has served 75 (elementary, middle and high school) students. Students are served on a continuum. All students are expected to participate with no interruptions for the entire school year and no new students can enter mid-term to allow for consistency in the delivery of the curriculum and ensure students have the opportunity to learn.
I've done my research but more importantly, I have learned by life experiences that there is a strong correlation between self- esteem and student achievement, and as a educator and counselor, I believe it is my duty to not only ensure students are reaching their potential academically, but that they are also comfortable and confident in their own skin. It's about educating the whole child. So, when a student enter at the beginning of the school year and she attends on a regular basis, engage in all activities, complete all assignments, show respect and responsibility, and she stays until the end of the school year, I consider her to be dedicated and motivated in striving to reach her full potential.
