We're empowering young people to believe in themselves and their community.

Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

Layered Learning

Our program education begins in the elementary space to create a foundation of shared language and concepts that students build upon in later grades.


Each K-12 program is intentionally designed to incorporate an immersive experience, where students “learn by doing” and apply concepts through different activities.

Inspire + Prepare

Our programs work together to inspire students via exposure to new information and opportunities, while preparing them for the next phase of life through practical skills and knowledge.
