POP’S Mission: Power of PROGENY (Pioneers Reaching Out for the Greater Elevation of Our Nation's Youth) (POP) is a nonprofit organization that encourages individuals to embrace our diverse world and to transform the world through the power of progeny: a unique sense of personal identity, perspectives, background, and self.
How do we support our mission? For over 18 Years, PROGENY advisors have created safe spaces and brave spaces for students to learn and explore the cultures of the world while learning about themselves. Power of PROGENY board members and DEI experts share their knowledge through events, workshops, curriculum, instructional materials, panel discussions, and excursions and experiences within their schools and communities.
Please partner with POP to be a sponsor, so that we can continue to bring these meaningful programs and workshops to people of all ages and to provide curriculum, ambassador programs, and workshops to school age children 8-18 years old. https://www.powerofprogeny.com/sponsor-pop
