Oftentimes urban and rural youth are underserved by the educational options presented in the public education sector. We exist to supplement those disparities by providing educational modalities that are both (1) relevant to culture and (2) driven by individual interest.
Our resources equip and empower individuals to navigate negative influences and position themselves for sustained success and positive impact. To do this, we focus on building character, broadening perspective and civic engagement, and developing skills to leverage the marketplace.
