Established in 1993, City Scholars® Foundation trains non-profit executives who help low-income youth do well in school.

City Scholars Foundation

To achieve academically, millions of low-income youth, challenged by poverty, gangs, drugs and teen pregnancy, depend upon the academic support, mentoring and creative enrichment quality after-school, school-based and charter school organizations provide. In turn, these organizations depend for their success upon passionate, highly-motivated leaders who are equipped to lead well with often very limited resources. 

Through our City Scholars® LEADERSHIP Academy, a tuition-free, non-profit business training and leadership development institute, we’re committed to training thousands of non-profit executives to positively transform the lives of millions of low-income youth in high-need, urban communities.
