Meet the


Mama Sharyce Bond

Hello, I’m Sharyce M. Bond, Director of Finance and Compliance for the Institute of Positive Education and New Concept School.


As a student at Chicago State University, pursuing a B.S in Accounting, I was required to complete a community service project with The Institute of Positive Education/New Concept School. After the program ended in Spring of 2011, I took a position as Program Support. Over the past 10 years, I’ve interacted with students, parents, and administrators. I’ve had the opportunity to gain great experience and knowledge that has rewarded me with many opportunities since the community service project. I look forward to exploring more avenues while gaining greater knowledge and contributing to the growth of this program.

Mama Breana Enyeart

Afterschool Coordinator 

Civic Engagement Instructor 


Hello, my name is Breana Enyeart.  I have been with The Institute of Positive Education since 2021. In addition, I am currently in my first year of law school at Loyola University Chicago. My interest in civic engagement was sparked in high-school due to the exposure I was given through community programs. I began doing volunteer work and eventually started my own fundraisers for my local childrens’ hospital and homeless shelters. Since working with IPE, my goal has been to add to our mission of educating the "whole child" with culturally relevant programs and increase interest for getting involved in our communities.
