We center people as our purpose.

Our impact reaches hundreds of schools, thousands of students, and millions of dollars. Part of thriving is recognizing the historical and ever-present setbacks facing our communities.

We focus on this by focusing on communities who are typically underserved, including but not limited to: Black, Undocumented, Low-Income, Women, and traditionally underrepresented communities.


Our mission

We're a small team on a mission to connect every community need to opportunity and resources.

From access to higher education, landing your dream job, to direct cash assistance our focus is on helping communities actualize the resources they need to close the gaps.

Genius is everywhere,
Opportunity isn't.

Through technology we center community in an effort to understand needs and drive real-time scalable change. Through education, cash assistance and community development we build the solutions our communities need.

Our team

Everyday we get the opportunity to come together and make something great. Our team is reflective of the communities we serve and in each moment we strive towards greatness.
