Bridging the Opportunity Gap

We create transformational learning opportunities that empower youth to realize their full potential.

Since 2001

We are award-winning, nationally recognized organization running after school and experiential education programs for the past 17 years in communities throughout California.

Quality Partner

We provide after school, outdoor, enrichment, and leadership development to elementary, middle, and high school students as well as college students and professionals.

Neighborhood Centric

Our programs are built by and for their specific communities. Staff at each site model the diverse student populations at each school because they come from within those communities.

We fill in the gaps to form an arc around, over and as a bridge to their education by offering experience, opportunity, and connection where it did not exist. We build the arc that supports their growth; we help students draw their own arc that leads towards a promising future.

So. What do we do here?

We build arcs.
