ReUNION is our massively open online curriculum (MOOC) platform designed to eliminate the achievement gap for African-American students within six years by providing them with comprehensive cultural awareness and their true historic and current contributions to mankind. Powered by proprietary curriculum, The Learning Garage™ psycho-social intervention, calibrated to address 24 different points of influence for learners of African descent, using the 25 years of exclusive content generated by eAccess Corp., its creator, and other acquired materials such as UNESCO's General History of Africa and General History of the Caribbean, it can bring 80 percent of students to subject proficiency in 6 weeks. ReUNION's success is unparalleled and it has been recommended to the nation's largest school districts by the American Educational Research Association.
The importance that art, in all of its forms, has played in history in the development of all cultures throughout civilization is undeniable. To date, archeologists have uncovered 30,000 years of art history and only 10,000 years of food cultivation. Our art programs utilize the proprietary Creative-Holistic Art Integrated (CHAI) educational curriculum developed by Executive Director Rachel J. Hughes, which empower young minds by encouraging creative thinking, personal responsibility, career development, environmental awareness and positive self-images – all of which increase student's chances for self-sufficiency and long-term success. Programs are delivered at iTech High School in Miami, Florida and at our mountain retreat in Asheville, North Carolina.
Entrepreneurs are made, not born. Like Rumpelstiltskin, we spin straw into gold. We mint CEOs with specialized technical training, courses, workshops, seminars and one-on-one mentoring that match participants with business professionals and subject matter experts that provide guidance through training and beyond.
Get into the Rhythm. We believe that computer science should be part of the core curriculum of primary education. Industry experts teach the improvisational art and science of coding in our single-gender, hands-on courses that inspire budding coders write their own programs and those preparing for a lucrative IT career.
We foster the development of creatives interested in pursuing careers in the Arts and Sciences through our incubator where we pair aspirants with professional Zenviba staff who nurture, mentor, hone and showcase their talents to seek professional opportunities and create viable business models to market their ideas.
