On this historic day, we salute Amanda Gorman, the nation's first National Youth Poet Laureate, and all of our amazing youth who courageously share their voices and passionately work to transform the world. #ushersnewlook #youthvoices #youthempowerment
#ATL #UNLScholars enjoyed the #MLKDay #NoPlaceForHateSummit with @ADLSoutheast where they explored ways to promote #unity and #allyship instead of division and hate. Special thanks to guest speaker @ReneeMontgomery for sharing how she turns her #SPARK + #passion into #purpose.
We're inspired to honor Dr. King's memory with a "day on" of service and learning. #Service is one of UNL's 4 pillars. Cultivating a heart of service at a young age is key to developing leaders who share their #SPARK to support communities and causes. Happy #MLKDay! #begreat
#SoulfulSunday - MLK penned these insights at 18—a reminder that young people are wise. During a joint session, our #UNLScholars brought their intelligence + character to a powerful discussion on addressing current issues and turning their passions and frustrations into purpose.
We're excited to welcome @GaCyberAcademy as the newest members of our #DisruptivatorClub! We remain committed to expanding our reach and making the programming, resources, and opportunities of #UshersNewLook available to high school youth across the country.
Special thanks to #Entertainment Enthusiast Deandra Simon for sharing her personal story and advice with our #UNLScholars about how to #beauthentic in their careers, especially when #networking and building #business relationships. #ushersnewlook #youthtransformation
The #wordoftheday is #authentic. Atlanta Program Coordinator, Avery Floyd, reminded our 11th Grade #ATL #UNLScholars to be true to their personality, spirit, character and #SPARK when exploring career paths and life opportunities. #ushersnewlook #beauthentic @lafloyd_42
Empowering our parents is equally important to us at #UshersNewLook. Special thanks to our awesome partners at the @CFPB for sharing valuable savings tips and strategies with our parents to help them take their finances a step further in 2021 and beyond. #unlfinlit #parentpower
At #UNL, we work hard to create #safespaces for our youth, and today during our staff meeting we also took time to create a safe space for our team. We shared about the recent events at the U.S. Capitol and how we can support each other. #Teambuilding that transforms lives!
#SoulfulSunday - Our #NYC #UNLScholars discussed the difference between internalizing and externalizing responsibility. They were reminded that accepting #personalresponsibility for their actions gives them the power to positively affect change in their communities and lives.
Giving our youth a platform for positive and productive self-expression is of the utmost importance to us at #UshersNewLook. We equip young leaders with the ability to express themselves in passionate and honorable ways from a place of self-confidence, authenticity and love.
Our 10th grade scholars kicked off the year with a great session about how to build a powerful scholarship brand. Using your #SPARK to creatively address an issue or need in the community creates a win-win for everyone. #ushersnewlook #personalbrand #useyourspark
#UNLScholars stepped up and did something very impactful to help get out the vote for GA's runoff elections. Special thanks to @MTV, @ViacomCBS, @GA_STANDUP and @Rep_GA for helping to get our youth excited about civic engagement. #ushersnewlook #icantbutyoucan #vote
We set no limit on our students’ spark but instead we encourage them to have more than one because that allows them to be the global leaders that they are called to be. Visit to hear from other students and how to support this #GaGivesDay #Impact
