Our mission is simple.
We EDUCATE and EMPOWER nonprofit CEOs to lead well with limited resources, as they help thousands of low-income youth stay in school, out of trouble and on track to a brighter future.
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 really “move the needle.” Since becoming a Fellow, we’ve increased our annual revenues from $350,000 to almost $1 million and now educate 1,000 more youth each year.
