We believe that education serves as the primary lever for empowering young adults to succeed. To this end, we encourage creative ways of supplementing classroom learning. Whether through unique athletic programs or field trips, extending education beyond a formal school setting has helped young adults to broaden their perspective and skill sets through experiential learning. Especially for families that lack the resources to provide for extracurricular activities, we seek to engage and empower youth in novel ways that extend beyond a traditional lecture format.
We believe that all children deserve opportunities to realize their full potential, regardless of their family’s financial resources. To this end, we seek to provide the chance for children to develop certain core attributes, including perseverance, integrity, and confidence. Cultivating these qualities enhances the ability to succeed in life. In doing so, we seek not just to provide opportunity for children, but also to enable them to create opportunities for others as adults.
We recognize the value of entrepreneurship as an engine of economic growth and opportunity for others. The ability to take initiative and generate new solutions remains critical to catalyze the growth of successful businesses, industries, and communities. For this reason, we especially seek to foster and channel the entrepreneurial spirit of high school and college students.
We support novel solutions in meeting the educational needs of children. We also seek to cultivate innovation by introducing students to different environments and experiences that extend beyond their daily existence.
For individuals to truly benefit from their education and to develop their full potential, we understand the importance of a strong community both within the home and neighborhood. To this end, we believe in enhancing the immediate community of children by supporting a stable and safe environment during childhood and adolescence. In addition, we encourage recreational activities as a means of restoring the morale and happiness of children.
