Educational transformation is possible

Making progress on equity requires us to have honest conversations about race and systemic oppression, not to lay blame, but to design more equitable systems.

KOO Media Academy

The Media Academy serves young adults 14-24 to teach them about Narrative Change, Media Production, Broadcasting/Podcasting, and Event Production. Students learn skills to operate video cameras, sound and audio, lighting, story telling, journalism and video editing to develop professional media skills to enter into the industry as a young leader.


The Kings In The Making TFI Program is a 3 year college access program in partnership with JP Morgan Chase’s Fellowship Initiative (TFI). This program aims to address 3 primary college readiness issues faced by Black and Latino youth: (1)access to rigorous college preparatory courses (2) access to experienced teachers who have high levels of cultural competencies when working with boys/men of color (3) access to consistent guidance counseling to continually track students’ academic performance and college application process. We work with Kings starting at 10th grade through to their senior year on academic advising, tutoring, literacy and reading comprehension, financial literacy, mentorship and career and professional development.

JEGNA Early literacy

The Jegna Early Literacy Program, a cohort model, has been shown to be an effective strategy for participants in the cohort for reaching goals and objectives. Jegna’s will work in classrooms two to three days a week. They will come together weekly for training and will also share issues, success stories, problem solve together and give one another support. We have a series of research-based books for TK – 3rd graders to use for training and in schools.
