The mission of Stimulating Minds through Entrepreneurship and Leadership (SMEL) is to introduce the forces of entrepreneurship by exploring creative-thinking, critical decision-making, and unconventional methods.
Through leadership, entrepreneurs will explore ten principles that will propel high self-esteem, confidence, and autonomy to be a recognized change-maker and community leader. We are confident that our revitalized change-makers and community leaders will be successful entrepreneurs and inspire many others to step out on faith.
SMEL will concentrate on improving learning deficiencies within our children through enhanced and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics comprehensive activities. We will continuously provide emotional and physical supportive services. Our empowered staff will achieve such results through investing their skills and time into each child enrolled in our programs.
SMEL will continue to enrich the parents of our children by providing job-readiness programs and supporting higher education mobility. Lastly, our administration and leadership team will ensure that three goals are met daily - one, staff and participants are safe; two, motivate through productive leadership; and third, everyone have fun.
