College Coaching Model

In 2013, Educate Tomorrow began to shift its operational focus away from recruiting and training volunteer mentors and began to connect directly with colleges and universities to establish dedicated college coaching programs for students who qualified for tuition exemptions. In 2016 the Florida Department of Children and Families decided to fund a contract to establish a statewide network to promote best practices for postsecondary success for former foster youth in Florida.  Educate Tomorrow was awarded the contract in 2017 and has worked to grow the number of college coaching programs statewide.  To learn more go to https://www.positivepathwaysflorida.org

 

Enrichment Programs

In 2015 Educate Tomorrow began a program called Global Field Academy to address the holistic needs of children and families.  Global Field Academy helps students and their families reach their maximum potential through the exploration of arts, environment, STEAM and sports.  We provide field based and workshop enrichment experiences, all within a small, multi-age day and after school setting.  Our “field guides” provide opportunities for our students and their families to master their personalized academic and life goals while expanding their minds and finding their purpose through exposure to all the world has to offer.  Our care coordinators work to assist families with economic stability, well-being and community resources.  To learn more about the program visit https://globalfieldacademy.org



Niger Program

Educate Tomorrow founder Virginia Emmons and Educate Tomorrow CEO, Brett McNaught met in Niger, West Africa as US Peace Corps Volunteers.  Virginia served in Kabey Fo, Niger, a small village located southeast of Niamey in West Africa. The school is host to 6 grade levels, adult literacy classes and is used for village forums.  The Primary School was built in 2003 and has four classroom education centers. Educate Tomorrow pays for the students' meals, school supplies, transportation, boarding and other expenses. In addition, the organization has built and stocked a health care facility and trained health care workers to treat the people of the village.
