The main objective of the Institute is to offer middle school and high school American young ladies from throughout central Ohio with an intensive hybrid residential and virtual/ online-based summer experience. The Nina Imani program is designed to immerse the students in an environment that will enhance their leadership skills, character development, problem-solving, critical thinking, and service to others.
Many of our young ladies have been enculturated into a lifestyle that produces negative life outcomes and are therefore unprepared and lack the skills, motivation, and determination to meet the basic expectations and rigors of today’s workforce and education.
The program educates students through transformational experiences related to historic and cultural influences in order to awaken their understanding of the world outside of their day-to-day realities. By increasing the students’ education, safety, workforce development skills, and cultivating their awareness, it expands and increases their capacity to function as effective citizens and become assets within their communities, regions, and nation.
