NERDS RULE INC. ACADEMY is committed to collaborating with community leaders to empower the next generation, fostering critical thinking and effective communication skills to achieve excellence.
Founded by Dr. Tristaca McCray, the Academy's primary mission is to develop global community action projects. In mid-August 2020, the Academy introduced its Fellowship program to community partners in San Diego and around the world.
The NERDS RULE INC. ACADEMY Fellows Program is designed to identify and support individuals aged 18 and above who have demonstrated the capacity to effect global impact and drive positive change in urban neighborhoods. Once selected, Fellows embark on a transformative journey of development and training, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to lead effectively in the face of complex and challenging community issues.
Fellows receive comprehensive support, including professional coaching, mentoring, and guidance from public relations experts dedicated to sharing their latest projects with a global audience. This support system aims to help Fellows gain clarity of mission, boost self-confidence, and receive increased recognition for their ideas and research, benefiting schools, families, and communities.
The NERDS RULE INC. ACADEMY Fellows Program is a platform for emerging leaders to make a lasting impact on their communities and beyond, contributing to positive change and progress in urban neighborhoods.
