The non for profit organization, Mattie Rhodes Center, asked for our group to re-create their current afterschool program. We started with the name and that expanded out into it's visual representation and ultimately it's course curriculum. We changed the name from "Explore" to "Expeditions" and created two subdivisions under that, one titled "Make your Mark" and the other " Cultural Journeys". Make Your Mark is for students 12yrs-18yrs of age and the Cultural Journey's program would pertain to children ages 5yrs-11yrs old.
The idea was to turn the afterschool program into a time of exploration, where the older kids would make "expeditions" into uncharted territories as they learned new skills and were given the chance to be partnered up with mentors within their chosen field of interst (ie: art, music, robotics, street art, etc.). Cultural Journeys would to show our younger students just how big the world is beyond their front doors and neignborhoods.
