We inspire diverse school communities to love learning and build their creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills. We envision a city filled with creative and collaborative community members prepared to thrive in the 21st century. We’re supporting underrepresented youth in finding success in high-earning careers by building the next generation of life-long learners and innovative problem-solvers.

These programs serve both elementary and middle school youth in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Upper Manhattan - served roughly 3,000 students from September to June.
