Need to know

Founded in June of 2020, at the height of indifference, Black Lemonade is a 501c3 solution-oriented nonprofit dedicated to turning lemons into lemonade for our minority and underserved communities.

 

Mission:

To invest in the minds of the community by educating and equipping all towards finding purposeful solutions that advance the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 

Superhero Diversity Summer Camp

What:

Students will participate in a 8 week Superhero Diversity Summer Camp from 8am-4pm, Monday - Friday from June 3rd through July 26th. This camp is designed to introduce students to the diverse mainstream superheroes we all know and love. Our weekly selected superheroes are intentional, essential, and fall within Maslow’s (expanded) Hierarchy of Needs. By introducing the diverse set of superheroes we provide the opportunity for students to explore the differences in each and appreciate the need for acceptance regardless of a person's identity or background. We further encourage students to apply the superhero stories to real life concepts as a way to divulge diversity.

 

Outcome Objective: 

Black Lemonade will increase at least 60% of participating student’s self-actualization by  80%. This will be measured by pre and post surveys given to both students and their caregivers, administered by camp staff.

 

How:

Self-actualization is a process by which one is able to reach their full potential. According to simplypsychology.org “Self-actualizers accept themselves, others and nature. They are not ashamed or guilty about being human, with shortcomings, imperfections, frailties, and weaknesses. Nor are they critical of these aspects in other people.” We are adopting the Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs which is a proven system for individuals looking to obtain self-actualization. Ultimately, meeting these needs (physiological, safety, belonging and loving, esteem, cognitive, and aesthetic) allows our students to “respect and esteem themselves and others.” Black Lemonade will increase 60% of participating student’s self-actualization by at least 80% with the use of this model and thus be able to impact the advancement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Please note that our refund policy was developed because summer camps have significant upfront costs, including facility reservations, staff hiring, program materials, and other logistical expenses. These costs are incurred before the camp starts, and offering refunds becomes challenging due to the financial commitments already made in reliance on your initial participation commitment.

 

Refunds: No refunds will be issued for payments made towards any payment plans. No exceptions. If you wish to withdraw your student, we will suspend all upcoming payment plan arrangements. 

 

If you paid in full and decided to withdraw your student on or before April 28th, a 90% refund will be issued. If you decide to withdraw between April 29th - June 2nd, you will receive a 70% refund. If you decide to withdraw between June 3rd - July 4th, you will receive a 30% refund. No refunds will be issued after July 4th.

 

All payments for camp must be satisfied no later than July 4th. All payment plans are to be paid no later than 2 weeks in advance of the student’s intended start date. Any payments not received will result in the deferment of your student’s participation in upcoming activities.

 

Default in payment(s): We understand that things happen. It is essential to have a conversation with us as soon as possible. Addressing issues promptly helps prevent them from escalating into larger, more complex problems. Timely communication allows for early intervention and resolution.

 

Scholarships are limited and will be awarded on a first come basis. A scholarship request application must be filled out in its entirety with proper documentation attached in order to be considered. Incomplete applications will not be considered. All applications will be reviewed and verified. Scholarship applications will be made available on January 20th, 2024.
