The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man [& woman].

After-School Programs and Workshops
I enjoyed the camp, I learned about different businesses and how different teens are proving that they can change the world through social entrepreneurship. The camp was awesome.
I love the camp, I learned so much and had fun while learning. I love Ms. Gaines she was the best teacher I’ve ever had. I’m serious out of all the teachers in school and camps she was my favorite!
The camp brings in a diverse group of kids and holds discussions on significant issues our generation should be talking about. You learn so much about social entrepreneurship, but also different perspectives on problems, and even a bit of life issues such as how to overcome fear. This is my favorite summer camp so far.
This camp was great! We did cool stuff on TinkerCad like build things that help the community or nature. Our teacher Ms. Gaines was lovely and thoughtful. I would recommend this class to 10-12-year-olds.
I enjoyed the Social Entrepreneurship for Tween camp because Ms. Gaines was enjoyable and the subject of social entrepreneurship was fascinating. The TinkerCad designing was fun too, and I enjoyed making my prototype and seeing it come to life. The software idea I came up with I believe will be beneficial to solving the problem I selected. I think I have a real invention to bring to life in the making to help foreign language literacy.

The biggest lesson I took from this course with Ms. Gaines was to be the change that our world needs. Attending this course I became an unreasonable thinker and now know how to give back to the world.
Bruno, age 15
My biggest lesson that I learned from the course was the difference between a Social Enterprise (SE) and a small business. I love that Ms. Gaines was very relatable and was easy to have hot button topic discussions and brainstorming sessions with.
Liza, age 14
I enjoyed that the course was like a family and the biggest lesson that I took away from the class is that it is okay to be people-centered and to look for ways to help others without the expectation of getting anything back.
Barron, age 16
Listening to Ms. Gaines story about how she started her Social Enterprise (SE) and how it was an issue she was passionate about. Made me want to give back too, as I consider myself an unreasonable thinker and am confident that I can create my own SE in the future.
Mariah, age 17
One of the biggest lessons I learned in Ms. Gaines course was to not be ashamed of the things we have no control over. Ms. Gaines taught us through her own life experiences good or bad, to take pride in ourselves and our circumstances because we all have a purpose. Our discussions were engaging with the freedom to agree or disagree without judgment. Ms. Gaines is liberating and a force to be reckon with.
