F.I.R.E. Entrepreneurship

Social Media is the future. Whether we admit it or not, it has influential roots in our conversations, what we consume, and the lives that we lead. Our children are engaging via social media at a pace that we have never seen before and as time progresses we find the connections seem to only grow with intensity. F.I.R.E. (Future Influencers Reaching for Excellence) is our social media influencer entrepreneurship program. Together with our youth, we show how social media footprints can be used for both the good of others and in entrepreneurial endeavors. Students enrolled in this program will learn monetizing strategies that will result in dividends in both social and economic currencies.
