AKALAhttps://www.goakala.com@goAKALAA blended model (tech + one-on-one) college admissions counseling platform that levels the playing field in access to College Admissions guidance8-12
Access to the level of expert guidance previously only afforded to their affluent peers. With the majority of schools in America going online, the need for critical guidance on how to get to college or equivalent pathway has never been more paramount.

Our knowledge economy requires a college degree or vocational certificate to succeed in our society and yet 17,000 high schools in America DO NOT have a dedicated college counselor. That’s 2/3 of our entire public school system! AKALA is a College Admissions Counseling platform that gives customized guidance to students as early as 8th grade and then guides their decision-making all the way through high school so they are the ideal college applicants by senior year. But the students also get access to expert college counselors any time they need it. This blended model (tech + one-on-one) is scalable and will help close the massive Guidance Gap that exists in America today.

FeatherNest CoLearning Grouphttps://feathernestcl.com/Dedicated colearning space in a safe, inclusive environment with high-speed internet and learning support10 - 14The worldwide COVID19 pandemic requires many high-school and community college aged students to complete coursework online. This sudden shift in learning delivery exposes the digital divide in our communities. It creates a disadvantage for students who do not have access to high-speed internet, a proper learning workspace or a supportive adult knowledgeable about how to use technology. FNCLG fills this gap by making affordable space available to these students. For as little as $60 per month, FNCLG has set aside four 3-hour blocks of time for students aged 16 and above. During these specific time-blocks, student members can use the workspaces in FNCLG to focus on completing their school coursework in a safe and professional environment. These students are also encouraged to pursue high-paying careers in technology that do not require a college degree but do require certification.Black Woman founder and Executive Director.Marketing, funding, contractsfeathernestcl@gmail.comNone yet.

STRUT Learninghttps://www.learn2strut.com@learn2strutSTRUT seeks to make children both happier and smarter, making learning easier, faster, and more healthy. This is done through emotional intelligence (EQ) technology. EQ is proven to increases academic, emotiional, social, and career sucess.

We delivers direct value to children and teachers through our digital Social and Emotional Learning Diagnostic Assessment (SELDA) and classroom learning app, eMojo. We created SELDA, the most accessible, comprehensive, and effective research-based assessment tool of its kind. Most schools can’t afford assessments, so we made SELDA a FREE online tool which provides immediate results and assesses an individual’s composite emotional intelligence (EQ) level while highlighting areas of strength and improvement. eMojo is the first application platform of its kind that utilizes technology to adapt in real time to a student’s academic level, learning style, emotional intelligence, and current emotional state. It replaces, integrates, or supplements directly with curricula and provides associated lesson plans for teachers while allowing students to work through lessons at their own pace. It also gives students the capability to choose when they’re ready to proceed. This customization allows for better student focus, increased knowledge retention, and optimal learning. Our first app features the integration of EQ within social studies.
K-8Our initiative was born out of the concern about black boys in particular dropping out of the school system because they are not properly supported. When these individuals drop out, they are not given the self-confidence and social skills to still find a successful path. While in many cases school might be the best path, individuals should still be set up for success in their relationships, families, careers, as well as community members - and if they stay in school, they must also have the EQ to succeed. With our focus on how to improve emotional intelligence, we want to make children BOTH smarter and happier, not just academically proficient. While well-funded schools have the most tech, in the future poorly funded schools will have more tech, because it’s cheaper than teachers. Some of these technologies lower EQ, thus having the potential to create an even further divide. STRUT helps to address such issues, by providing low-cost EQ solutions for communities and schools.Our team is 70% diverse (including Asian, Black, and Hispanic) and 40% female at all levels.
