Our Team

What separates our organization from other youth development programs is that we are truly a Family. The dedication and investment of our staff is a direct correlation to Scholar success. Our desire to participate in ongoing training and development ensures we are equipped with the tools to help foster the success of our Scholars. Our team devotes countless hours to reading applications, interviewing candidates, engaging with emerging communities, and traveling across the country. At the end of the day, we are one big  family that is privileged to be able to help pave the paths of others through education.
