Help every 16- to 24-year old become economically mobile.
We train our Navigators in life coaching, classroom management, working with diverse and vulnerable populations, the AR curriculum and book.
We partner with schools and negotiate dates, times and overall logistics. When the partnership is finalized our Navigators will be ready to travel to the partners site to work with the students.
How we Began
Christian and Elliot met working together at a tech company selling accounting software. After countless hours of collaboration they began on a journey to write a book for underprivileged individuals. After completing their book they knew they had to find students to work with. They began to recruit high school students from local basketball gyms to come to their small groups they hosted outside at a local Starbucks. Their group grew for 1 to 3 to 20 in about 2 months. The initial group of students were all Somali immigrants or 1st generation citizens. Next, they made a website and were contacted by a school district all the way in Pomona, CA. The school district offered them the opportunity to pilot their program at an alternative high school in their district. Christian and Elliot left their full-time jobs in Denver, CO and moved to Southern California 30 days after the offer. Since the pilot they have moved back to Denver and work in 3 different school districts.
Elliot grew up in Denver and graduated from East High School in 2010. Then, Elliot went on a wild college ride, playing basketball and attending six different colleges. Eventually, he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Entrepreneurship from Metro State University: Denver in 2015 and a Masters in Public Administration from Arkansas State University in 2019. Currently, he’s pursuing his PhD in Public Affairs at University of Colorado Denver. He has always had a passion for education and knows the impact age relatable mentors can have on a students success. Currently, Elliot lives in Denver, and frequents local basketball gyms looking for good pick-up games.
