Our Mission

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

The Problem

The education playing field is not level for all students, even before the first day of class. Race, English proficiency, income, and other environmental factors all contribute to why individuals may face opportunity gaps throughout their lives, hindering them from achieving the same academic success as their peers.

We must close the opportunity gap in education if we want to close achievement gaps and this is where our work comes in.
