The goal of the “For the Love of Education Day Academy” is to cultivate a love of learning in students and to offer a unique educational experience at a top university.
The Day Academy, held in Chapel Hill, is a one day interactive program whose sole purpose is to share and teach the principles of being a lifelong learner and the importance of an education. The program helps students to realize their potential and envision a future where they are mentally and emotionally equipped, responsible and productive scholars.
Hosted by Dr. Omar Simpson, this program includes a host of workshops that focus on Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Communication. In addition, the participants are introduced to positive male role models who are leaders in various areas, including business, their communities, education and the military.
