Innovate! is a program that celebrates and empowers students from third grade through high school with afterschool, summer and weekend programs.

Innovate! begins the summer before third grade and continues to support students through high school graduation. Teachers and mentors work to broaden the horizons of children who rarely see beyond their street corner and to equip them with all of the skills they need to achieve their full potential.
