I am NATION seeks to prepare, empower and mentor students by encouraging and allowing them to compete with purpose. We believe age-appropriate, educational, competition is one of the most productive ways to equip youth with the necessary professional skills and life-skills that will allow them to succeed in the future. Competing with purpose allows students to develop life-skills such as communication, leadership, project management, career planning and advocacy/negotiation as well as allows for exposure to various professions.
Addressing the needs of global and domestic communities, our selective programs enable students across the county to collectively engage in social justice based competitions.
We mentor our students by connecting them to different organizations and leaders we call "impact partners." Our impact partners range from for profit sponsors to non-profits that organize partnership events. Our impact partners are professionals who allow students to shadow them at work and guest speakers. Our impact partners are essential and inspirational, collaborating with I am NATION participants every step of the way. Our impact partners are essential to the execution and project management of our NPrep, NLead Nterchange programs.
We prepare our students for future leadership in their professions and communities through creative hands-on competitions, instead of the usual "classroom" setting. Using age appropriate competitions, students learn various skill-sets needed to become global and community leaders in the professions of digital-marketing, social entrepreneurship, journalism, STEM, PR/Communications, the non-profit sector and policy.
We empower our students by providing selective, innovative, and enjoyable programs that teach professional skills and life- skills sets. Through our programs, students are exposed to the domestic needs of local non-profit organizations and the global needs of impoverished communities around the world. I am NATION participants are able to leverage the professional skills and life-skills they learn in our programs to assist with those needs.
Innovative and interactive opportunities such as our NLead, NPower, Nterchange and NPrep programs prepare students to become global and community leaders in their future professions.
