The Foundation's goal is to revolutionize youth development in underserved communities.Through mentoring, mindfulness, entrepreneurial skills, project-driven learning, & sports, youth discover the confidence that comes from right choices. The program is designed to go deeper into the subjects of life, character development, excellence, and the pursuit of happiness. The long-term goal is to inspire children to become "professionals at life," to find peace of mind and success.

Challenge

Las Vegas has one of the lowest high-school graduation rates in the United States, at approximately 48%. Our foundation has a 100% graduation rate, along with 97% of those students receiving college scholarships. The Foundation tackles youth homelessness, lack of direction, and general unhappiness. We have helped over 110 children off the streets of the greater Las Vegas Area, and into some of the most prestigious colleges in the world, such as Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Harvard, and Oxford.

Solution

By giving youth a framework for generating their own happiness, and empowering them through project driven learning. Our children earn every opportunity that is given, and this arms them with confidence, a sense of empowerment, and the ability to handle tasks that their peers may not have the chance to. We aim to provide skills necessary for our students to flourish in both higher education and society at large.

Long-Term Impact

The Foundation will empower approximately 350 students annually, providing mentoring, mindfulness training, and project driven learning, which will eventually lead to college scholarships. We now have alumni of our program running successful businesses, coming back to mentor and guide the upcoming generations in the same way that they were influenced through our organization.
