Over the past two decades Dr Pollzzie's mission has focused on empowering students by identifying obstacles to their academic potential and removing obstacles to ensure educational equity for all students. The empowerment of students is facilitated through a collaboration with school administrators, teachers and community members. Classroom lessons have focused on growth mindset, academic goal setting, understanding the brain and emotional regulation, internet safety, and career planning through interest inventories.

WINGS participants meet once a month for power lunches where lessons are delivered to examine how current events and and world history frame the lens of their own potential.
