Thank you, Elizabeth Jones, for joining me on the Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast.
Elizabeth & IEA.
Elizabeth Jones is the President and Co-Founder of the Institute for Educational Advancement.
The Institute for Educational Advancement (IEA) is dedicated to the intellectual, creative, and personal growth of our nation’s gifted and high-potential youth. Central to the mission of IEA is a commitment to the development of the whole child through engaging educational experiences that promote optimal challenge, mentorship, exploration of ideas, and recognition of personal potential. IEA seeks to connect like-minded individuals and supports a diverse community that creates a sense of belonging and affirmation.
Every child deserves the opportunity to learn something new every day. For 25 years, the Institute for Educational Advancement has fulfilled that need for over 11,000 gifted children in Southern California and across the country. Providing access to engaging rigorous content and individual support is important for a child’s intellectual and personal development and the growth of the nation, which has notoriously underfunded gifted education. IEA provides enrichment programs, support groups, summer camps, and resources to nurture young minds and help children reach their full potential.
IEA is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. They are planning celebration events throughout the year culminating in their Gala in September. The overarching theme of “Guiding and Connecting Curious Minds.” When they inspire curiosity and empower gifted youth to discover and explore their passions. Here’s what can happen. They light the way for future generations of leaders to think critically and further a love of learning and community. With the support of donors and grants, IEA can continue its important mission to meet the unique needs of intellectually advanced children. Please visit their IEA for more information.
