Initiatives

We believe that the four areas of life that our program addresses are key factors in developing productive citizens and leaders. Our initiatives are guided by carefully and thoroughly designed curricula to reduce the information and exposure gaps while educating and creating opportunities for practical applications. Each initiative runs for an eight-week period.

Future Illuminators

Our College-Prep initiative is designed to change the current narrative about youth who are first-generation college aspirants from low-economic communities. We are addressing disparities in college preparation programs and admission process for at-risk, low-income, and first-generation youth. We provide the guidance necessary to ensure a successful college admission experience.
