To provide all students with a transformative mentoring experience by establishing a collective of institutions committed to equity, community, and mentorship.

Can a startup seek to change the world while remaining grounded?

We stumbled into this business because we wanted to solve a problem. We were not pursuing a billion dollar valuation, nor were we trying to disrupt education. We simply wanted to help students feel at home in the world. We wanted to bridge cultural and socioeconomic gaps on high school and college campuses and enable institutions to deliver personalized support to their students.
