Message from our team

  • We are Champions for Kids.

  • We put kids at the center of all decision-making and help our partner organizations reframe how they do business and coach them on how to do the same.

  • We believe in inviting the community's voice to guide our Black students' educational and social-emotional outcomes.

  • We are a backbone organization that surveys the educational ecosystem to see what's working (based on data and research) and then provide support (through coaching, advising, and resources) so more students and families can have access to and benefit from these services and programs.
