Our Program and Principles

Stiletto Boss University believes in the Power of Collaborative Solutions, Six Principles and Effective Tools for Building Healthy Communities. The collaborative- solution approach assumes that:

  1. We will attend both to the individual and to the total environment in addressing any issue.
  2. The interactions among those participating in seeking solutions will use all available tools- networking, coordination, cooperation and especially collaboration
  3. The solutions that emerge will be culturally competent and relevant, mainly because those most affected by the issue will be engaged in the solution process and they will bring their wisdom to the process
  4. These collaborative solutions will draw on the strengths of each of the participating individuals and organizations and systems and the solutions will tap into both the formal and the informal systems.
  5. A mobilized and empowered citizenry will be central to finding collaborative solutions that work at all levels of our society
  6. Engage Spirituality as your compass for social change

Community Based Model

The Community Based Model was implemented within the Grier Heights Community in partnership with Crossroads Corporation. Our goal is to create one business that will promote sustainability and unity within the community.

In-School Partnership Model

The In-School Partnership Model started with a pilot program in 2015 - 2016 school year at Harding University High School in partnership with MeckEd’s Career Pathways. In 2017, SBU expanded to West Charlotte High School in partnership with Community in School (CIS) program. Community in School (CIS) connects students to impactful workplace learning opportunities, fostering career exploration, while also connecting the dots to the real-world application of education and the workplace. We are looking forward to expanding back into Harding starting Fall 2018.
