      “Through the Pesce Mentoring Institute I was paired up with an amazing mentor that has helped to turn my dream into a plan that can become a reality. He has been extremely helpful throughout the entire time I've been working with him.  Everyone in the office who runs the program is nothing but supporting and enthusiastic in assisting you to find a mentor who is your perfect fit. All in all, I'm extremely happy I joined the Institute and would recommend others to try it out for themselves. You won't be disappointed!”

    • "To understand American history, it is essential for educators and students to know African American history."
       
      You're invited to join us for this one day workshop presented by experts from the Sankofa Collaborative. The following topics will be the focus of presentations and break out sessions:
      • How can teachers appropriately facilitate discussions about race and equality with students of various ages?
      • How can educators be prepared to handle emotional responses of students, families and themselves when teaching difficult and controversial content related to race and equity?
      • How do educators help to cultivate young adults who are engaged in public dialogue and action for equity?
      • How can local and regional history be used to make our collective and diverse experiences more relevant for students?
      Teachers and administrators will be equipped with best practices to help students grapple with difficult history, think critically, and become active participants in our diverse democracy.

    Shea Center for Performing Arts

    San Jose Taiko’s distinct performance style blends traditional rhythms of Japanese drumming with the beat of world rhythms, including African, Brazilian, Filipino, Latin and Jazz. Known for synchronized choreography, eclectic musicality, and joyful spirit, the group has captivated audiences worldwide with the empowering sounds of taiko and connecting people through cultural understanding, creative expression, and rhythmic heartbeat.

    San Jose Taiko is acknowledged as one of the premier taiko ensembles in the world, whose artistry, philosophy, and unique organizational structure are studied and emulated by many arts groups throughout the U.S. and Japan. Recognized for its artistic and managerial excellence, San Jose Taiko has received both Advancement and Challenge Grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Chevron Award for Excellence. Most recently, in 2010, the Foreign Minister’s office of the Japanese government awarded San Jose Taiko the Foreign Minister’s Commendation of Achievement in recognition of the group’s (then) 38-year history and contributions to the taiko art form. San Jose Taiko is only the second North American taiko group to receive that honor.
