They are dedicated to providing STEM+ARTS+HUMANITIES+
MOVEMENT day and overnight programs including Innovation & Literary Camp Demigod™and 360° solutions to solving 21st century challenges facing community, regional, national and international populations
These entities have led to the establishment of the educational non-profit, DIGIVATIONS XGENS. XGENS comprises High School and University Model United Nations Academies and Delegations which participate at MUN Conferences held at the UN in Geneva and NY, as well as Harvard and Yale, among others. It also includes Institutes focused on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals and their Academy of Exponential Thinking which deploys design thinking to educate citizens about the UN's SDG'S enabling their ability to implement the Goals at the local, regional, national and international level. XGENS also includes an Accelerator and Incubator, Collaboratorium Innovation Resources, (CIR), focusing on translating and applying scientific as well as artistic and humanistic research and discoveries systematically to support achievement of the targets underlying the UN's SDG's.
All of the referenced non-profits share a common mission: educating and training youth, adults and professionals with "Sustainable Skills to Build Sustainable Communities."
