The Why Not Incubator is a global resource and proven model designed to empower school-communities. As an educator, I specialize in helping schools foster partnerships with corporations and local businesses to create access, equity, and opportunities for youth!
Across the country, many of our schools suffer from lack of resources to provide for the needs of the students and families they serve. In addition, there are local businesses surrounding these schools who want to engage their communities, but don't always know who to call or where to start. This is where we come in and ask, "Why not?"
By bringing awareness and making connections between these two entities, we are building stronger, healthier and more economically stable communities where every person is capable of reaching his or her greatest potential.
This is community empowerment at its best!
Working directly with schools and local businesses, we can build relationships by launching mentoring programs, community service opportunities, fieldtrips, community events, youth leadership programs and professional development.
Our team provides interactive workshops, side-by-side coaching and keynote presentations on how to build bridges where everyone wins!
The picture to your left was the day I learned my "Why not?" purpose. After dining at Lawry's Prime Rib restaurant in Beverly Hills, I decided to do something drastic. The next day, I cold called the general manager! I was most surprised that he picked up the phone, decided to visit my school and invited my students, staff and parents to come there for lunch...for FREE! When we pulled up in our old school bus, we were greeted by a red carpet and the entire staff! We felt like stars! That day turned into an ongoing relationship! My scholars are all grown up now, except for Kenny on the far right (looking at me) who's life was cut far too short. Before his untimely passing, he was able to take his mother back to Lawry's so she could experience what he did. That changed my purpose where I wanted to help other educators embrace the power of school-community partnerships.
