Educational Success

Educational attainment is a key predictor for future success. We invest in strategies proven to have the most influence on students' long-term educational advancement and career preparation including early childhood education and school readiness, supportive school environments, out-of-school enrichment and positive behavioral developments. For students who do not pursue a traditional path to college, we recognize a need for innovative workforce programs that cultivate job and life skills and provide young people access to career opportunities.

Our Goals:

  • Children enter school ready to learn and receive effective academic and social support throughout their educational experience.
  • Youth are nurtured to become skilled, self-sufficient and contributing members of the community.
