Mrs. Brown was great, organized and extremely informative. I would like to hear her speak more about healthy eating and the positive effects that it has for mothers and their children, meal preparation, ways to organize our time and affirmations to give our children.
I loved the information for the Effective Parenting workshop. I wish she had more time to present more information and was able to give us some activities to work on. I would love to hear her speak again!
The content of the workshop was relevant to me and Mrs. J was helpful and well prepared. I will definitely use what I learned and I am excited for the next one.
I will definitely drink more water. I didn't realize that water changed so much. Too, I learned about how stress changes my body and will try the breathing exercises we did. Thanks!
I had an amazing time at the Youth Summit! Our hard work really paid off and I'm so proud of what we did! Nate and Jess worked so hard. I'm really glad with the results. I want to thank 5A Elite for allowing me to be part of something so great!
My experience with 5aelite has made a positive effect on me on how I view life. The organization alone reassures me that there are people who are still thinking about the youth and how they will uprise in the world. I feel if the people who participate take it seriously, they will in fact have a good experience. I just always look forward to what they have to offer. I very much love 5aelite because this organization gives its own view on youth and I feel like this is something that would be pretty hard to discover later in the years, and I want to get as much knowledge from this organization as possible little by little.
You both are very inspirational and really help me think deeply when it comes to my life choices.
The content of the presentation was very useful and I wrote notes! There is so much I want to implement!
Through the "Walking out your Vision" workshop the instructors' tone, attitude, deliverance of the message was great. Her words moved me and made me motivated to do what I desire. As always with her workshops, I feel motivated and determined. I am thinking of my vision and I'm driven.
At Last!!! Not just another Youth Organization offering programs, but a "True" spiritual character-building movement. Having been born and raised in Chicago I have both, witnessed and been victim to the many plights and negative dynamics that plague or youth. From extreme poverty and crime, to the more personal challenges of academic achievement gaps and the mental/behavioral health challenges that further marginalizes our youth. So, when I moved to Pittsburgh, Pa and encountered the same issues I began working with various organizations that supported youth and community development.
Then came the burnout after years of chasing change. It wasn't until I met Nate Brown and learned about his vision for 5A Elite that I felt a true sense of hope. After seeing first hand the power of cultivating internal and external peace in a chaotic society- I was like "how can I be of service?" add in the fact that the youth will both lead the movement through the program(s) and also educate the adults in their communities on being change agents, Then you have a future that shimmers and shines with a powerful and radiant light!
5A Elite is the platinum standard for shifting the narrative around how to engage our youth in a holistic manner that prepares them to face today's challenges and tap into tomorrow's potential by engaging them in mind, body and spirit. Nate and Jessica Brown are truly committed to mobilizing future leaders as builders of peace and champions of justice. I'm honored to know them and serve the organization.
I really felt this power of words workshop helped me a lot with self-respect, the power of my words, and my confidence and how I effect the confidence of others with my words!
On June 18, 2016, I attended a 5A Elite Youth Empowerment event held at the August Wilson Center, Downtown Pittsburgh. The idea of health and fitness are becoming more important to me as I get older, and learning about healthier life alternatives are helpful, so the Detoxing and Renewing the Total You presentation was of particular interest to me.
I went in not knowing exactly what to expect and WOW was it worth it! Jessica Brown was very prepared and knowledgeable on the subject matter, and enthusiastically explained the connection between food and the brain; how our brains react to the foods we eat, and in turn the reaction affects our mood, our ability to process information, make decisions etc. We also learned about how to detox our brains which leads to total renewal of the mind, body and spirit.
I believe we all left better informed and better prepared to make positive changes in our lives.
This workshop was a reminder that what you say to others does really make a difference. I really was happy to learn about the experiments that were done. I really enjoy the word power workshop.
