M.O.M. helps identify and pair scholars with community service and volunteer opportunities in their area.
To help with public speaking and presentation we encourage scholars to perform original work for an audience of their peers and family and create opportunities for them to do so. Additional opportunities to perform are also made available to scholars.
As a part of The Murals of The Mind Project™ an anthology of the best original works written by scholars is produced and published at the end of each year. Scholars are engaged in many aspects of the development of the anthology, including title and cover design.
