KnowRo Teen Program at New Outlook Teen Center

Inspiring Young Minds

We are proud to announce the Knights of the Knowledge Roundtable Program, an after school program for teens that aspires to bring increased appreciation of intellectual discourse and mental vigor in local youth. The program is offered in collaboration with New Outlook Teen Center, a non-profit youth center in Exeter, NH that provides middle and high school students with high-quality creative, recreational, educational, and prevention programming.

The weekly program will be led by The Knowledge Roundtable’s founder Jared Rand on a volunteer basis. Volunteer programs such as this help fulfill the company mission of making knowledge accessible to everyone. The program will be held at New Outlook (directions) every Thursday from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM beginning January 10th. It is open to all New Outlook teens (learn more about joining: Parents; Teens)

Activities

The primary objective of all activities is to help teens build positive associations with mental engagement. Activities will include:

  • Brain games
  • Study sessions
  • Group readings and discussions: relevant news stories, science, psychology, and other student-requested topics
  • Meditations

Knighthood

Teens are offered a path to knighthood by which they are officially honored as a Knight of the Knowledge Roundtable. Those who choose to follow this noble path must:

  • Exemplify stewardship of knowledge
  • Establish excellent study habits
  • Engage with friends in the pursuit of knowledge
  • Take an oath of life-long knowledge development upon knighthood
