HELP US BUILD THE MELVINA MASTERMINDS BOOT CAMP!

What Is the Melvina Masterminds Boot Camp?

Founded by comedian and actor Hannibal Buress, Melvina Masterminds aims to create programming in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and arts for students in underserved communities. Our goal is to develop an eight-week boot camp that provides students on the West Side of Chicago with STEM + Arts resources that are not readily available to them.

Why Should I Donate?

Your donation will help us provide an all-inclusive STEM + Arts learning experience that empowers high school students in Chicago’s West Side community to believe in themselves and explore their interests. Over the course of the boot camp, students will work on projects aligned with STEM + Arts, as well as benefit from career coaching and small-group collaboration designed to help them consider various opportunities for their future. As part of the program’s partnership with Inquiry In Action, students will also learn foundational leadership skills, empowering them to be effective leaders of tomorrow.
