Generation Prodigy is extremely excited to feature Victor from African Centered Preparatory Academy! He is smart, insightful, strong and a servant leader. This young man rose to the occasion academically, graduating to the 9th grade with 7 As and 5 Bs! Personally, I am proud of this young man and want to congratulate his mom as well. He desires to go to college and play NFL football. He may manage some teams too! He has law potential! Help us celebrate Mr. Victor! #IMa
We are reflecting on our last moments together at African Centered Preparatory Academy, and thank Ms. Bea Sims for helping us progress with our IMatter Vision Board. The youth loved her! #memories #missingImatter #teentalk
Many teens have issues with their teachers. Teachers can become hard to deal with, and frustrating. In my situation, my algebra teacher had an issue with my "so called" attitude and refused to change my grade. I had a rough morning last week before I arrived to school, and my mouth had gotten me into a lot of trouble. Trying to resolve the problem, I apologized to my teacher, but she wasn’t taking it. My teacher told me I couldn’t come in to fix my grade or do missing work

Fast forward to 2019, when someone gossips, that rumor is spread to the world through social media and the world can now judge you 😩. Kalin's point, "
Teen Talk is a place where young people like me can express and learn about themselves. My name is Jachelle and I just graduated high school. High School can be tough sometimes. What's going on in school? "Teens in school feel like they can't express their emotions due to peer pressure." Concerning gun violence, "Teens also feel like guns make them feel prideful and tougher." In school, you have to stay focused if you want to survive. #teentalk #Youth #gunviolence #ment
"April showers, bring May flowers," is a popular cliche that is true this year in Kanas City. It is also true for Generation Prodigy as well. April showered us with a lot of information to help us grow as an organization. As we move patiently, listening to mentors and team members with valuable wisdom, May brought us more youth. We are excited to see GP students bloom into more confident and focused individuals. We are preparing for our second pilot tour, Washington, D.C. a
