We enable and inspire community-based organizations and public school districts to find new ways to engage students, support their communities, and develop environments where innovation can thrive.

Our Core FocusEnsure all children have access.



Access means a lot of things. For us it means improving outcomes for public school students by ensuring their access to high-quality and stress-free public learning environments. Environments that prepare them for the challenges they'll face in the future while encouraging them to innovate, create, and grow.

Access to Experiences

that enable children to dream beyond their environments leveraging mentors and advisors who share and engage.

Access to tools & technologies

that make learning more exciting and extend learning beyond the classroom.

Access to resources

that make it easier for their parents to engage and support their educational journey.

Access to a brighter future

which should be available to all children regardless of their wealth or location.
