what we believe

Every life matters.

We will always see the individual and will never overlook the importance of impacting one to impact many.

Relationships change lives.

We believe that relationships, not programs or events will change lives.

We create with, not for.

We are dedicated to asking what the needs are and working with our schools to create impactful solutions.

We will serve while we lead.

It’s simple. We will lead the way in serving.

We will work to understand the culture of poverty.

We will work to understand and to change our preconceived notions of poverty.

We will advocate for all students and teachers.

We will advocate for high quality education, maximum support, and enriching opportunities for all students and teachers; we will not settle for any form of inequality.

We will appreciate before we celebrate.

We know that our impact is not found in the sacrifice of one but in the sacrifices of many, because of that, we will appreciate all who make our impact possible first; then we will celebrate!

We inspire hope.

We believe hope can see the soul through any adversity and hardship. We are committed to believing in and inspiring hope.
