Kids running major programs?

Some people may raise their eyebrows when they receive an email from a 10 year old telling them the logistics of the program the signed up for, but I am so excited to have launched the world's first gifted program for gifted kids, by gifted kids.

 

I'm modeling this in part off of MIT's Educational Studies Program, which I was an admin in for 2 years. While with MIT's Educational Studies Program, I designed and directed their first ever virtual program (for over 2,000 students!!), which may have been the largest synchronous virtual education program ever (and may still be). While I had notable experience with virtual education, I didn't have experience designing or running programs like this. After directing Summer HSSP 2020, I was Mentorship Subdirector for another program, Minors Policy Subdirector for another, Data Czar for the organization, directed Cascade 2021, created the first Cascade Beyond program 2022, and more. Indeed one of the values of MIT ESP encompasses putting people into roles not because they have demonstrated experience with similar roles, but because you feel they could grow into the role, and gain valuable experience along the way. 

 

The world isn't built for gifted kids. Gifted kids are capable of so much (polymath is my favorite word) and they have wide ranging interests they want to pursue. Unfortunately, society rewards committing to one path, and often won't reward someone who 'only' has talents and ability, hiring only those with years of relevant experience, even if their ability is less. So I wanted to give them something they can achieve and put on their resumes/college applications that demonstrates their abilities.

 

I recognize that gifted kids are incredibly capable, even if their resume doesn't say they are. One gifted student has been interning with me in 2023, and she has shown me the incredible work she can do when trusted with the responsibility and given proper support to do it. After 2023, she was the clear choice to direct edRev’s 2024 summer programs

 

For these reasons and more, I am thrilled to be mentoring this group of gifted kids while *they* design gifted programs. Self-defined as the Coalition of edRevians (COE for short), they've already surpassed what I thought they were capable of, and I thought they were capable of a lot! I am so proud of and impressed by the work they’ve done, and I’m thrilled to see what they do with the skills they build along the way. When you join the program, I know you'll be impressed.
