What's Included

A project-based, social entrepreneurial enrichment program. We founded the program on the premise that children have innate compassion and generosity of spirit, as well as innovative and creative potential which can be nurtured, encouraged and augmented by using a life skill set that will enhance their lives no matter which educational or career path they choose. We named the skills the five-I’s: Inspiration; Ideation and problem solving; Interaction and collaboration; Innovation and creativity; and Initiative. Using the five-I’s, we created activities geared to 4th and 5th graders that augment and complement the curriculum standards taught in their elementary schools. At the conclusion of our social entrepreneurship program, each student, with the help of his/her student, collaborative team, will have, among other things: (a) identified a social problem and innovated a solution that captured the team’s imagination; (b) branded the entity; (c) created a business and marketing plan using financial concepts, such as expense, income, investment, per unit cost, start-up costs and funding sources, for an enterprise conceived through the team’s own initiatives using the five I’s skill set; (d) developed their own mission statement to help the children organize their innovative ideas and capture them in a form that easily communicates those ideas to the public; and (e) produced a videotaped pitch to attract start-up capital.

About This Organizer

The Home and School Association is proud of LEP, a program for managing afterschool enrichment at Lafayette. The HSA will not directly operate any specific afterschool offerings, but will oversee and centralize the process of registration, attendance and program conformance to all DCPS mandates for using school facilities. Classes vary in content and approach to accommodate different learning styles and interests as well as covering a variety of ages. Enrichment programs aim to allow kids to experiment, take risks, learn new skills, make new friends and develop confidence to succeed inside and outside the classroom.
