I KNOW I CAN Helps Students in Columbus Schools Attain Their College Dreams

Posted by on Dec 30, 2018 in School Workshops | Comments Off on I KNOW I CAN Helps Students in Columbus Schools Attain Their College Dreams

I KNOW I CAN Program Overview

Established in 1998, the I KNOW I CAN organizations seeks to ensure that every qualified Columbus Public School student who wants to go to college has the opportunity to do so. Part of the mission is to encourage children to find out what resources are available to them in order to overcome student and parent fears about financial and informational decisions relating to a college education.

The I KNOW I CAN plan has four missions. The first is to motivate students to stay in school and pursue college. The second is to advise students and parents how to apply for college and access financial aid. The third mission is to fund students with the Last Dollar Grant and find additional sources of financial aid for needy students. Finally, the organization promises ongoing support for students in college to help ensure that they complete their degrees.

Early Awareness Programs

The Columbus Schools offers children a long term program for attending college. Beginning in second grade, all Columbus Public School children receive a free I KNOW I CAN motivational children’s book in order to show children that college is possible and affordable for people from all walks of life.

At the middle and high school level, the Summer Scholars Program helps academically talented students attend summer enrichment programs at college campuses across the nation. Columbus Public School students receive financial and application help to attend these programs and gain the necessary exposure to what life is like on a college campus.

High School Workshops

Academic and financial advising for all high school students, with a particular focus on high school seniors, is another way in which the I KNOW I CAN organization helps Columbus Public School students prepare for college. Volunteer advisors help Columbus Public School students by arranging college awareness fairs and a variety of activities that bring students to college campuses and help them understand the various strategies that they can use to gain admission, including exam preparation as well as enrolling in college preparation courses while still in high school.

Every February, the I KNOW I CAN hosts Financial Aid workshops in conjunction with the Columbus Public Schools. These workshops help parents and students complete all the necessary forms for applying for federal and state financial aid. These workshops pair volunteers with parents and students to ensure the one – on – one attention for each Columbus Public School student interested in applying for college financial aid.

Last Dollar Grants

After ensuring that every Columbus Public School student has received all the financial help possible from federal and state sources, the I KNOW I CAN organization helps to arrange additional funding, up to $ 1,200 per academic year for those students who need extra money to fill the gaps in their financial aid package. The organization guarantees financial aid assistance to every qualified graduate in the Columbus City School District. The grants are available for up to five years and must be re – applied for every year that the student attends university.

Alumni Share Strategies for Growth at Wharton Scale School Workshops

Posted by on Oct 21, 2018 in School Workshops | 2 comments

Prof. Karl Ulrich, Vice Dean of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, on the recent launch of the Wharton Scale School Workshop Series at Wharton San Francisco. At these events, Penn and Wharton Alumni in the area are able to gain insights from experienced business leaders and meet fellow alumni.

On Friday 12 June we invited St Patrick’s Primary School Belfast along to the MAC to take part in our MAC Workshop with artist Paddy Bloomer.

Taking inspiration from the artwork “Dream – Spontaneous Combustion” by Olaf Brzeski, located in our Sunken Gallery as part of the exhibition ‘I will go there, take me home’, we challenged the Primary 6 pupils to get creative, have fun and even prank their teacher.

If you’re interested in organising a workshop for your school or group or want to know about other ways to Get Creative at the MAC then please contact our Learning & Participation Officer Clare Lawlor on clare@themaclive.com or call 028 9089 2960.

New SCHOOL OF WOODCARVING is Open for Signing!
For a long time, many woodcarvers and woodworkers from all over the World asked me about if I would be willing to teach Woodcarving Skills.

DRUMROOTS AFRICAN DRUMMING AND DANCE WORKSHOPS IN SCHOOLS

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 in School Workshops | 3 comments

We at Drumroots have had many years of working in schools to gather a wealth of experience leading exciting and inclusive African drumming and dance workshops to get the most out of children and young people from all backgrounds and from broad demographic boundaries. Until recently we have relied on only the powerful tool of word of mouth, as well as printed testimonials to allow other people to know how effective, uplifting and beneficial our work with children and young people in schools can be. However, keeping up with the times and acknowledging the importance on online media and resources, as well receiving more and more requests from school teachers wishing to see what can be achieved through our workshops, before inviting us into their school or centre, led us to produce this video.

In a single day we ran coordinated African drumming and dance workshops with the children of Stamford Park Junior School, aiming to produce an end of the day performance for the rest of the school and children’s parents — an idea which is becoming increasingly popular as it allows not only the pupils who participate in the workshops to reap the benefits, but also for the whole school, plus teachers and parents to see what can be achieved and to enjoy seeing their friends, pupils and own children performing this amazing art form.

This video was produced with the help and permission Stamford Park Junior, the work of African dancer Sens Sagna, and was filmed and edited by James Kelly of Eskimotion.0

Drumroots and Sens Sagna run exciting, inclusive and engaging African drumming and dance workshops in schools and for people of all ages. For more info, visit the website or call us of: 0161 408 5270.

More Info

Children and young people an are often natural musicians without even knowing it, and our Drumroots school workshops are designed to help pupils explore their individual musical abilities, as well as show them the value of working together as a team. Our workshops also focus on motor skills and coordination, whilst emphasising the importance of communication with fellow young drummers to bring out the best in their music.
We work with Infant, Primary and High School pupils, and our workshops can support key areas of the curriculum, as well themed school events such as Arts Weeks and the celebration of world cultures. The individual content and style of workshops reflects the age and ability of the pupils, and we always provide at least two enhanced CRB-checked and insured facilitators, one of whom is HSE certified first aider. We have particular experience of supporting pupils with special educational needs, including Aspergers and Autism. We also work with expelled, excluded and socially disadvantaged youngsters. in addition, we deliver training for teachers, and we are available for after school drum clubs.
