Martin Luther King Memorial
A day at Six Flags America
Award Recognitions and just a great way to end an amazing experience with The Pyramid Project.

We closed out another successful @thepyramidproject Youth Exposure Tour in Wash, DC! Shout out to our amazing photographer Malcolm Troy (IG: @troysessence), Bryette, Bianca, and Erikka, who kept us going this week.

Saturday night’s closing dinner was so inspiring - we were blessed to have @honeybmills and Atty Grayson share words of wisdom with us about determination, self-definition, and overcoming.

The young people also surprised us with a peer-led skit where they shared how much they learned during the week and how they took on and excelled in numerous leadership roles each day during the program. Although they were expressing their gratitude, I know that they are truly the gift and @typinkins and I are grateful to be able to share space with them. During their remarks, one young son shared that he “hopes we all get back together again and have more fun.”

I do too. ❤️

#GivingTuesday is only a few days away.

The Pyramid Project has planned a world premiere video allowing youth from the Mississippi Delta to explain why the organization is so important to them.

#GivingTuesday is only a few days away.

# GivingTuesday is a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.

Instead of studying for law school, I’ve been awake the entire weekend creating this promotional video so you can hear directly from youth in the Mississippi Delta about why the Pyramid Project is so important to them.

Please take a moment to 1) hear what our youth have to say about the Pyramid Project, and 2) plan ahead to donate to the Pyramid Project on #GivingTuesday which will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

Our Story

The Pyramid Project was founded by Ty Pinkins and Sabrina Curtis. Ty, a native of Rolling Fork, Mississippi, and Sabrina who was raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, acknowledged a need for leadership programs for youth. They started the organization in an effort to immerse youth from underserved communities in educational, business, and public-sector experiences that are not readily available in their home communities. The curricular aspect of the program is designed to assist and inspire youth to become successful leaders in their communities. The major components of the Pyramid Project are to introduce the participants to successful public and private-sector professionals who young people can learn to emulate and to expose youth to social and cultural enrichment that they might not otherwise encounter on a day-to-day basis.

In doing so, The Pyramid Project instills a sense of purpose, pride, and passion with respect to the participants’ future goals as well as provides the participants with informational and educational opportunities that will motivate them to share their experiences with their peers.
