LetsThinkBig (LTB), a youth empowerment program at Tykoon, a student-led creative marketing company, recently announced the kick-off of their virtual workshop series partnership with Higher Achievement – Baltimore and Unboxing Change to educate elementary and middle school scholars on college life, entrepreneurship, and healthy eating habits.
Higher Achievement is an after-school program that works closely with schools and community members to provide students with academic and social-emotional tools to help students thrive across D.C., Baltimore, & Virginia. According to their 2020 Annual Report, over 800 scholars were supported and of which, 67% are African Americans.
“The goal of this partnership is to gear our future minority leaders with the information and insights needed to be exemplary figures in their communities. I don’t think it’s ever too early to share the experiences gained from my three years in college and four years of running this business. These are the type of sessions I wished I got when I was in middle school!” says Peter “Gucci P” Iwuh, CEO of Tykoon.
With the overall goal of increasing the number of young minority entrepreneurs nationwide, LTB focuses on providing impactful experiences for scholars from elementary to university students through workshops, panels, and webinars to equip students with the knowledge, information, advice, mentors, and tips to be successful in any career they choose. This partnership marks LTB’s first extensive four-part series that’ll take place between April and end in May.
The series starts off with a segment that highlights the differences between college and high school and then will segway into entrepreneurship, career path choices, and a live healthy cooking portion.
LTB, a sector of Tykoon, a student led-creative marketing agency, wants to encourage and remind other media and entertainment platforms to connect with the young leaders in their communities to move forward the goal of increasing minority leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs in our society.
