Every youth, regardless of circumstance or resource, should have the opportunities to reach their fullest potential.

We believe there are several critical inflection points in a young person's development path toward becoming a healthy and productive member of society. Our grantmaking will target those risky junctures, in search of holistic solutions to prepare low-income youth for the rigors of education, career, and family. We’re currently looking at solutions along a spectrum from prenatal care to after school programs, and from innovative approaches to youth mentoring to providing college access and career preparation. The opportunity landscape for our kids has cratered in the past generation; it’s our mission to ensure every young person has an equal opportunity to succeed.
