Our company started with a brother/sister discussion over a meal at a Mexican restaurant in Salem, Oregon, like most good companies do. The conversation was centered around the idea of saving all the kids attending the school we were working with.
We realized that although our goals and our passions were massive, they weren’t quite feasible. We brainstormed about what we could do and what we could build to bring a sense of community and joy to these kids. Focusing on three main things, we were able to crystallize a program we were both happy with.
Our company and the goal of our mentors that work with us is to help kids find their passion, learn their value, and appreciate their community.
