The foundation believes that through enriched early childhood education, little brains can wholly develop to full potential: academically, socially, emotionally, and beyond. The foundation is passionate about investing in a stronger, smarter, and healthier America by providing impactful resources for disadvantaged youth in America and Latin America.
