Beyond the Classroom's mission is to expose children and young adults to people, places and things they would not normally or easily have access to in their daily lives.
By providing unique, educational and positive experiences, we empower youth to see the world outside of their classrooms and neighborhoods, grow hope in their future, pursue active roles in society and achieve goals.
Our youth have so much to offer to the world - we believe in the power that they hold, and know that they will mold future generations to come. At Beyond the Classroom, Inc., we are here to give them the support they need in order to shape them into leaders of the future.
We have a number of educational programs and leadership initiatives that help nurture our youth and help them develop the skills they will carry throughout their lives

These girls struck the "Embrace Equity" to honor International Women's Day. This theme was shared to explain that equal opportunities are not enough...people start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. They learned the difference between equality and equity.
