Girls on the Run
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
Odyssey of the Mind
The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. For more than twenty-five years, this unique program has helped teachers generate excitement in their students. By tapping into creativity, and through encouraging imaginative paths to problem-solving, students learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve problems -- great and small -- for a lifetime. The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students how to think divergently by providing open-ended problems that appeal to a wide range of interests. Students learn how to identify challenges and to think creatively to solve those problems. They are free to express their ideas and suggestions without fear of criticism. The creative problem-solving process rewards thinking "outside of the box." While conventional thinking has an important place in a well-rounded education, students need to learn how to think creatively and productively.

In 1985, Helen O’ Grady, a popular TV actress in Australia, decided to create a completely new way to develop children and created a children’s drama program using various fun and fast-paced drama activities to build children’s speaking, acting, and social skills. Parents saw the remarkable benefits of class participation and classes built quickly throughout Australia. In 1989, the program was launched into other countries as The Helen O’Grady Children’s Drama Academy.
Today her theater classes for kids have proved so successful that there are over 50,000 students currently attending classes in over 1,500 locations throughout the United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Southeast Asia, and Europe.

The Young Rembrandts' method focuses on teaching children to draw, using demonstration and a structured step-by-step process. Through the process of weekly instruction, students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history and mastery of their materials.
The development of foundational skills for preschool and elementary students is critical. There is a common misunderstanding that creativity happens without instruction, that artistic creativity comes forth naturally from a child or adult. Young Rembrandts believe true creativity comes forth when mastery of core skills is combined with original thought. Through our network of Young Rembrandts franchise business owners, Young Rembrandts helps children develop the skill, tools, and confidence to continue participating in the arts.
Young Rembrandts have a passion to dramatically increase the abilities and therefore the number of children that participate in the arts. Young Rembrandts' students receive a foundational art literacy that invites them to continue an appreciation of the arts throughout their lifetime.
