I used the skills that I learned at the Audacious Institute to help define our project into a singe focal point. It also gave me leadership skills that aided in production of our project for the Verizon Innovative App Challenge. I don't think we would have been first in state without it.- Tommy, Student
I wish I had this growing up. I think this program helps students to think in a direction that they may not learn in school.- Pam, Parent
I think every student should take this course. It changes the way you think about yourself, others, and what you can do.- Rose, Student
