Community Impact and History
Princess Eli is using her influence to donate books to children. Join us as we positively impact the future of our students with career panels, book drives, and career counseling.
The impact of my work is widespread. Over the years through my business and non-profit I have given away scholarships, done career seminars and trainings, and helped countless people get jobs. In 2017 I performed several Pro-bono shows at schools and community centers where I donate my books, ran activities and volunteered by reading to children. Check out the photos of interactive reading time shows that I performed in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles, CA.

2012-2017 Community Work
Set on a Hill Community Programs in conjunction with our non-profit Estadio Magazine has impacted the community in numerous ways. Within the last three years we have already accomplished so much.
In 2012 we helped a High school student gain a summer internship position as a Bookkeeping Analyst where she learned how to reconcile account, use QuickBooks, and scale balance sheets. She earned $10 per hour as a high school student and learned a transferable skill that she can use in any city she decides to go to college in. That student, who was a triple minority—African American, female, in a single parent home– now has her first year of college paid for, due to our training in fundraising and saving for college.
In the summer of 2013 we hosted an Education and Career Fair where we brought in two
career panels, 3 speakers, and trained students on job, college, and career options.
The event was in partnership with two non-profits, Earth’s Angels Conference of Internal
Hope Fellowship Church and Solutions for Teen Life. The event was hosted by Almeda
Mall and the program benefited both non-profit organizations. Set on a Hill was glad
to be able to give away three scholarships during the event.
In the fall 2013 one of our students in our summer career and college training program, after applying the techniques we taught in our course, earned $27,000 in scholarships and grants for the 2013-2014 school year.
In 2014 we became partners with the Consulate General of Brazil in Houston. We also traveled to Manaus Brazil and Recife Brazil in order to connect with local avenues and to determine their needs. While in Brazil we filmed fan correspondence for MundoFOX.
In the fall 2014 we gave away $1150 scholarship worth of
credit to Thomas and Thomas Law Firm to two students for
a Pre-Educational Scholarship. This scholarship assisted
students before they start attending school, to prepare
them to qualify for scholarships.
In 2015 we partnered with Rice University HACER program fundraise for a scholarship component to their club. Never in the history of HACER have they had their own scholarship fund, until now.
In 2016 we donated our live performances to multiple schools and children’s programs. We donated toys and books to international and local California elementary schools.
In 2017 we helped a dancer to prepare her for the Los Angeles market by creating a talent resume, producing her head-shots and producing two reels for her portfolio.
Become a part of our success in the community by partnering with us or becoming a volunteer.
Princess Eli and the Feathered Prince
Princess Eli and the Feathered Prince is a Songbook from the Princess Eli Multilingual Songbook series. It is about a curious bee who has feathers instead of regular bee wings. Even though he doesn’t quite fit in, he and Princess Eli find a way to help save their honeycomb by providing enough food and helping them learn to fly again. In the book the children will learn how to plant wildflowers in the spirit of bringing back the bees. The book includes riddles, a hidden butterfly on every page, and a song. The song featured in this book is called Spread Your Wings and Fly and is sung in English, Spanish and Korean. It comes with a book and e-song. The songbook teaches you how to plant a wildflower, deals with self-esteem issues, discusses the importance of rest, and delves into finding a job.
