- What we do -
A nonprofit, 501(c)(3) that raises funds for educational scholarships to colleges or trade schools.

Our scholarships recognize and support high school seniors that have demonstrated and declared a career path that is outward-focused. 

We call that pay-it-forward attitude - student leadership.

Our Philosophy 

Our team is a dynamic blend of educators, young entrepreneurs, military veterans, and seasoned international businessmen.      


We seek to nudge a philosophy of service across the globe.

We believe that a focus on the "we" over the "me" is needed today more than ever before.
