Core Program Partners

We are bringing together outstanding partners anchored by nationally-recognized organizations with deep expertise.

TGR Foundation

offers students the resources and support needed to pursue and achieve their goals in life through experiential STEM curricula, college-access programs and educator professional development.

Winward Academy

is a research-based learning platform supporting students with math courses, ACT/SAT prep and college applications.

Our partners will deliver best-in-class educational, sports and wellness programming at little or no cost to children in grades K-12 with a special focus on low-income and disadvantaged youth from Westchester and the Los Angeles region overall.
