Areas of Focus
We focus on areas of work that are essential for young people to thrive: a safe and stable place to call home and access to an educational system that creates conditions for students to succeed. We look for innovative opportunities to invest in communities who are redesigning these systems in partnership with young people.
Resourcing Equity and Democracy
We have a long way to go in realizing a society where everyone has access to the American Dream. Ensuring our democracy works for all of us must go hand in hand with improving our public systems to live up to our country’s promise. We believe a robust, multiracial democracy should—and can—provide the goods, services, and policies needed for our communities to succeed.
