This program was inspired by the success of Tulsa's Greenwood District. Greenwood, the pioneering and unapologetic epicenter of African American business and culture, was commonly known as "Black Wall Street." The history of "Black Wall Street" has taught us much about the courage and fortitude required to build a self-sufficient and self-reliant Black economy. Today, we want to empower young people to think like O.W. Gurley and become entrepreneurial pioneers in their own community.
M.O.R.E stands for Mentoring our Rising Entrepreneurs and we are non-profit organization based in Baltimore, Maryland. We are a homeschool tutorial, for ages 7 -14, that will supplement the parent's primary teaching by offering a safe, secure place where M.O.R.E students can receive academic support and a strong emphasis on entrepreneurial mentoring and project-based services. M.O.R.E acknowledges that it’s never too early to teach children, in under-served and impoverished communities, the importance of financial literacy and economic equality. We also recognize the importance of parents and/or guardians in a child’s education and seek to partner with families in establishing a better future for youth through this academic support and mentoring services.
Our program was initiated as an alternative to public school education. We are passionate about homeschool and feel that every parent should exercise their right to educate their child in the most appropriate and effective way they see fitting.
The academic program of the tutorial covers a variety of subject matter. The following CORE subjects are taught alongside several electives:
African American History
Entrepreneurship (This class intersects with the following subjects):
