YOUTH EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Using a blended learning model, Denari creates world-class education programs in under-resourced communities.  We seek educational equity by creating cutting-edge programs for disadvantaged children without regard to race, gender, creed, and religion.  Our educational content is sourced from leading universities, education boards, master teachers, creatives, and technologists around the world.

MINT

The headlines say it all, from a Presidential commission on financial literacy to over $1.5 trillion in student loan debt.  One of the most important educational issues in our society today.  Mint is our tech, personal finance, analytics, and consumer mathematics program.  Delivered at the middle and high school levels (grades 5-10) with real-life case studies and technological tools, children explore consumer mathematics, philanthropy, credit and debt, investments with dashboard analytics, cryptocurrencies, and mobile applications. 

Mint divides into three subprograms:

 

Mint: partners with corporate employees at higher-performing schools for one-day plus weekly experiential activities. 

 

Mint AS (After School): using a re-engineered curriculum, it focuses on education and experiential projects in after-school programs.

 

Numbers Project (Faith-Based): explores the relationships between money, philanthropy, and scripture working with Jewish, Christian, and Islamic children and young adults.

ELEMENTS

Elements is a dynamic, early learning program that sets a strong foundation for a child's academic, social and emotional success.    Using research and best practices from Montessori, Finnish Board of Education, and MIT, Elements focuses in four areas:

  • K-4 international literacy and geography

  • Elementary STEM

  • Visual Thinking (Art)

  • Communications

TIPI

Inspired by the eco-practices of Native Americans, Tipi raises child awareness of the environment, food, energy, water conservation, and the bio-material world.  With a rapidly growing population, climate change, and food shortage looming in the future, it also promotes health prevention and nutrition, fitness, and public health education using 3D technologies.

FRONTIERS

In an ever-changing world of technological advancements, more than 80% of future jobs will be in the STEM field and most of them have not been created yet.  Co-developed with engineers, researchers, and consultants, Frontiers works with high school students to provide comprehensive workforce development training in digital literacies, project management, and career counseling through a mastery soft skills curriculum.
