Our mission is simple.
We EDUCATE and EMPOWER nonprofit CEOs to lead well with limited resources, as they help thousands of low-income youth prepare for college, career and community leadership.
Make our Mission POSSIBLE
Working on the front lines in high-poverty, under-resourced urban communities, nonprofit CEOs need more than creative curriculum and a heart for helping low-income youth to keep the lights on and the doors open.
To survive and thrive in a challenging and often lonely job, nonprofit CEOs need, but seldom can afford, the comprehensive and proven effective leadership
EDUCATION, COACHING, MENTORING, NETWORKING + ACCOUNTABILITY
our City Scholars® Fellowship provides tuition-free for leaders helping youth where the need is greatest.
The City Scholars® Fellowship teaches what defines an effective nonprofit and gives leaders concrete strategies to implement that have an immediate impact. Since becoming a Fellow, we’ve increased our revenues over 45% and now educate 600 more youth each year.
