Vision

Early Excellence is a non-profit organization that seeks to develop digital media products such as an online magazine, an informative podcast, and a positive-focused television show for teens and young adults. Our aim is to create an inviting, exciting, and interactive experience for teens who love to express themselves creatively. We want to supplement what students learn in school by allowing them the opportunity to put their skills into practice and give them access to equipment and additional resources at our center in Norfolk, Virginia. Early E also offers students real world experience at a younger age. Most of the time, budding journalists must wait until they enter college to get hands-on experience in the media field. Early E wants to offer every child who wishes to get behind a camera or a microphone can do so right in their own communities. Our goal is to expose students to other avenues of self-expression that they may not have considered previously.

Early Excellence Programs

Early Excellence’s programs are designed to address the needs of all students. Our programs are created to build connection and empathy, and to fulfill our vision that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved, and celebrated. Early Excellence is more than a one-day program. Our programs go beyond traditional programming and events. We’re building solid networks and foundations for students to celebrate and support one another.
