TAKING URGENT ACTION

TO EDUCATE OUR YOUTH

Unite4:Humanity 2014

mission & vision

By leveraging F.A.M.E. and other strategies, we develop programs and provide funding for outstanding non-profits dedicated to youth in education, entrepreneurship, and arts programs in the United States.

FROM MMC TO PHILANTHROPY


Project: NOW is a non-profit initiative formed by Dale GodboldoAlways In The Club FoundationU.S. Dream Academy, Cherokee Gives Back, PVBLIC Foundation, and Arthur Wylie Foundation, and was announced at the Clinton Global Initiative. Project: NOW’s mission is driven by the fact that every day that a child goes without a proper education or meaningful mentorship, and in some cases, without even the ability to read, he/she falls dangerously behind in life, and is likely to fall through the cracks. This contributes to the cycle of incarceration, poverty, and the growing inequality that makes America weaker when competing in a global arena. Project: NOW stresses the urgency of NOW in executing a series of new programs that will leverage public and private partnerships, scholarships, mentorship, arts training, and media to increase literacy, college acceptance rates, and entrepreneurial pursuits in the underserved communities we target. Comprehensive public/private and community outreach strategies will be used to bring attention to the Project: NOW initiative, calling for action NOW to save our kids from the cycle of ignorance, incarceration, and poverty.  

​In addition to direct programs and outreach strategies, the Project: NOW initiative aspires to utilize and bring awareness to Social Impact Bonds to scale the success of existing at-risk youth non-profit programs that we target. Impact bonds use existing public and private funding sources to expand the provision of existing programs that have demonstrated effectiveness at increasing test scores and high school/college graduation rates for students growing up in inner-city communities in the U.S. Its mission is to lead to greater equality of opportunities across the nation, as well as a reduction in public spending on incarceration. Part of this awareness campaign includes the creation of a large-scale event that brings Hollywood, government, and communities together for a multi-day call to action convention, to include conferences, panels, entertainment, and commitment-based non-profit activation.

PROGRAMS / INITIATIVES

We're proud to announce our Project:NOW Initiative helping at-risk youth in underserved communities in America. Project:NOW was launched at Clinton Global Initiative, and with help from President George W. Bush at the Inaugural Legacy Project Dinner in New York.

"The Mouse Club was as much a performing arts high school and business academy, as it was a television series. The structure, support and training we received served as an important foundational element for so many from that show, and why I am passionate about giving young people similar opportunities.”
