Become a Global Citizen
SIP’s program runs from middle school through a student’s masters. The focus is always building the student’s ability to learn the “soft” skills that will enable them to succeed in life. This means traveling to museums, attending seminars, etc. to broaden their horizons. This gift helps us offer students who live near the nation’s capital an up–close view of its treasures, or once in college, to attend an industry conference or become a member of a degree friendly association.
21st Century Skills
This level of giving helps SIP prepare our students for the career skills that they will need to be effective leaders in their organizations or self–created companies. They learn networking, LinkedIn presentation skills, attend seminars that support the writing of an effective resumes, learn how to write and deliver keynote speeches, and are attend industry specific guest speaker sessions.
SIP offers students a series of small group leadership training that gives students an opportunity to develop into C–suite executive and corporate board members. By meeting, networking with, and learning about serving on nonprofit and corporate boards, wealth management, dressing for success, effective networking, and negotiating the corporate politics of being an underrepresented minority students learn the skills necessary to climb the corporate ladder and fulfill the aspirations of addressing the problems of the “leaky pipeline.”

“The Secret History of Home Economics”
by Danielle Dreilinger
In the surprising, often fiercely feminist and always fascinating The Secret History of Home Economics traces the field’s history from Black colleges to Eleanor Roosevelt to Okinawa, from a Betty Crocker brigade to DIY techies. These women became chemists and marketers, studied nutrition, health, and exercise, tested parachutes, created astronaut food, and took bold steps in childhood development and education.
