The African American achievement gap is one

of the most important challenges our community

faces today, and we need to disrupt it.


By cultivating curiosity and developing a rigorous work ethic within our underserved youth through STEM/STEAM programs at a younger age, we can provide the children of our communities with fruitful educational careers that will set them up for success throughout their lives. A few ways we do so:


Championing equality in learning, by taking the necessary steps to insure that no child is left behind because of bias.

Computer Class

By fighting against disproportionate discipline policies that villainize our children in the same classrooms they’re supposed to be nurtured.

Through mentoring and opening their eyes to the unlimited possibilities of a higher education.
