OPENING THE DOORS
TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE

WHAT WE DO

Better learning for all students today.
ACADEMIC MENTORING

We match college students to participate in one-on-one mentoring with a child at one of our partnering sites and focus on building personal trust and support to foster the child’s academics, future thinking, and character development.

Bridge to Success

We provide high school students with opportunities to build on specific skills for life after high school such as how to register for college, apply for jobs, build a resume, and where and how to hone their professional development skills.

Internships

We facilitate a variety of different internships to showcase the passion, creativity and skills of our interns. Apply today.

Every pledge is critical to sustaining our mission.

SUPPORT OUR CAUSE

Behind Our Cause

Our organization is a true collaboration consisting of qualified and passionate team, and enthusiastic community partners
Every student: inspired to succeed academically and personally.

We encourage and support youth in their pursuit of a brighter future.

We seek to change the lives of youth facing adversity. Our focus on innovative approaches to mentoring and learning helps inspire all students and we are extremely appreciative of all who are involved in accomplishing our mission. Mentoring has shown to improved children’s chances of academic and social success.

Children and youth who are mentored as less likely to be involved with gangs, violence, teen pregnancy, and alcohol and drug use. They are also more likely to do better academically, have better attitudes towards school, have better school attendance and an increased likelihood of going on to higher education.
