Summer isn’t canceled. It just looks a little different.

Unprecedented times call for unprecedented efforts to innovate, move forward, and change the world for the better.

Dear Prospective Students and Families,

Now, more than ever, we need young people who are resilient in the face of change, who are innovators, who have empathy, who do not back down out of fear. There is a new world being shaped by the coronavirus—some will simply try to survive in this new world, while others will take this as their opportunity to make advancements and contributions to it.

As we are all learning in this environment, things rarely go according to plan. What often makes or breaks a successful venture is the ability to adapt to changes and turn challenges into opportunities.

We’re writing to tell you about our own pivot in light of what we’re all experiencing together right now. Over the past month, our team has worked tirelessly to create a summer experience that focuses on what’s most important: the safety and success of our students.

Adapting to challenges is the cornerstone of the Quarter Zero experience. Amidst the challenges we are all facing, we foresee tremendous opportunity for our next cohort of students. We hope you’ll be a part of it.

Quarter Zero IRL

Quarter Zero IRL will bring the best parts of our in-person programs alive! Designed as an add-on to our virtual programs, we will travel across cities in CA, interview real human beings, meet some of the most amazing people, and develop life skills while having an absolute blast! This experience will provide a step-up to all the learning of the virtual programs, going further in the intensity and depth of what has already been done, and keeping a specific focus on developing storytelling, interpersonal, public speaking, and other life skills.

We’re pretty great, but don’t take our word for it.
