Founded more than 30 years ago, Envision is an experiential education organization on a mission to help students of all ages explore their interests, make a difference in their community and in the world, and turn their passions into careers. The organization offers elementary, middle and high school students programs in career, technology and leadership. These programs are developed by educators and align with Common Core State Standards and other national standards for education.

Here are just a few of the programs:

  • Pathways to STEM — children in 3rd-5th grade spend six days in the summer engaging in hands-on STEM simulations and workshops. Kids make new friends while learning skills like programming a robot, exploring the role of a doctor — and even investigating crimes!
  • Business Innovationenvision-program1 — this eight-day program, based in New York City or Silicon Valley, teaches high school students the fundamentals of business and leadership. Students will get to visit various professional sites and compete against their peers in a startup-style, entrepreneurial environment.
  • Junior National Young Leaders Conference — middle school students spend six days in Washington, D.C. during the summer, exploring the nation’s most important monuments, learning about  influential figures from American history and developing leaderships, problem-solving and teamwork skills.
  •  Digital Media, Film & Journalism — love Channel One News and want to experience what it’s like to work as a reporter? Then the Envision mass media program might just be the one for you. High school students spend seven days in New York City, taking part in a simulation to create, produce, edit and publish a multimedia piece suitable for broadcast. A visit to the New York Film Academy and participating in valuable workshops are also part of the program.

    I think that students should be allowed to express their thought and ideas to president Trump.

    I think it is a perfect idea to contact the new president about the problems that the teens of found.
    (Hope the president gets the notices about what the teens found).
