Did you know that people who work in their dream job or have hobbies they love often became interested in those areas at a young age? Whether its music, math, sports, creative writing or something else, the fact is, every child is good at something! Some kids know what they love early on and others can benefit by a proactive process of exploring interests and developing talents. Join instructor Samuel Young, master teacher of 2e kids and two-time Fulbright scholar, on this journey of discovery where kids will learn more about themselves, how they learn, what they’re interested in, and what they can do with their passions and talents now and for years to come. Brought to you by our friends at Young Scholars Academy, featuring 2e instructor and director, Samuel Young.
