Radio Show: Let's Innovate Through Education

Let's Innovate through Education (LITE) was born in a Teach for America classroom in 2013. The goal of the program was to challenge students to dream of innovative ways to change their community through entrepreneurial ideas. Over a 4 year period, LITE grew from a tiny classroom to an established organization teaching 21st century skills to over 1,000 students across the city of Memphis. LITE partners with several community organizations including Bridges, Streets Ministries, Memphis Athletic Ministries, CodeCrew, Boys & Girls Club, and Reach Memphis to find and recruit talented students for it's prestigious Finalist Program.
