Training Leaders to Transform Lives®


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


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.

Make our Mission POSSIBLE

Every dollar you give helps us EDUCATE and EMPOWER nonprofit CEOs to lead well with limited resources, as they help 45,028 predominantly low-income youth each year in the five-county Greater Los Angeles region stay in school, out of trouble and on track to a brighter future.
