We challenge you to expect more from the city, our students, and ourselves. We challenge you to join us in showing others that a small group of dedicated individuals can make a difference!  




Transforming high schools in the inner-city will not occur overnight. It will require a team of bright, ambitious minds including committed volunteer advocates who bring a lifetime of unique experiences and expertise. It will require collaborative effort, flexible and creative thinking, and most importantly, a belief that together we can support public education. 

That is why it is our privilege to introduce our pilot 12+ Inter-Generational Mentor Program, a one-year engagement that opens a channel for mature volunteers to help transform the culture of inner-city high schools. You will be on the frontline of our mission to inspire our students to dream bigger than they ever have before.
