Our Mission and Vision
Our vision is to ensure every child is prepared for college, career and a successful, productive life. Our mission is to lower the systemic barriers of poverty and institutional racism and provide the caring, belief, access and support each student needs to succeed.
What we do
We focus on three things: systems, scholarships and supports.
We use data and best practices to identify gaps in student achievement and success.
We raise funds so every eligible JCPS graduate can get a tuition-free, two-year college degree or workforce training. The neediest also receive opportunity grants to defray other costs associated with higher education.
We convene and collaborate with partner agencies in government, education and social services, offering services aimed at ensuring every child in our community has the guidance and tools to succeed.
Why We Do It
Our goal is to ensure an educated, growing and vibrant community in which all citizens can prosper and contribute to the economic vitality of our city.Our Impact
