Motivational Outreach works with students from local middle and high schools to help them see college as an option, and show them how to think with a growth mindset. The club partners with organizations across the city such as the Bronx Engineering Technology Academy, Park East, Kingsbridge Heights Community Center, Renaissance Youth Center and Fordham Bedford.
Motivational Outreach hosts a variety of programs including:
Motivational seminars: a tour and a presentation to show the students that college is attainable, and it is possible to get there through self-understanding, self-motivation, effort, and planning
Career development seminars: help the students realize their career interests, and plan a path to achieve them
S.T.E.M seminars: show the students different aspects of the sciences to motivate them to consider a science major in college
College access seminars: give students information about attending college and provide something to strive for
Mindfulness seminars: help students understand themselves, accept themselves, and love themselves to help them become happier and healthier
