Our Mission:

To disrupt generational poverty by creating
a Success Mindset™ in all families.

Generational Poverty is a Mindset.

When a family has lived with a poverty state of mind for generations, it becomes almost impossible to imagine themselves in a life of prosperity.

We create college & career readiness and family engagement.

 We imagine a world where every child is prepared, both intellectually and emotionally, to rise to the highest calling of their hearts. Where all families have the tools to break free from the shackles of poverty, limited opportunity and low expectations. Where every individual contributes fully to America’s prosperity, helping to make our nation stronger, prouder and better.
