Good morning, beautiful people!

C.O.R.E had such a wonderful time with the AMAZING 8th graders of the Harlem Educational Activities Fund last Thursday! We got to chat it up with them on the topic of Media Literacy.  Of course, we just couldn’t talk their ears off so we dove into skits and open discussion.  Each and every student showed their creative skills and shared their beautiful thoughts which ended up in lots of smiles & laughs!

Take a peek!
