The mission of the Go for Yours Foundation is to provide the next generation of leaders with financial assistance, resources, and guidance to positively impact the world. Our three areas of focus are leadership development, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement.
Our vision is to help close the opportunity gap in the United States.
The Opportunity Gap
According to the Schott Foundation for Public Education, U.S. Department of Education data reveals that the opportunity gap is the greatest crisis facing America’s urban youth. When an opportunity gap is present, there is an unequal amount of resources available for young people living in and attending schools in low-income neighborhoods.
Our foundation’s programs and services are a direct response to the opportunity gap in the United States. We locate and identify high-achieving youth isolated from the resources to prepare them for personal and professional success. The Go for Yours Foundation steps in to offer a positive support system that will help our students avoid pitfalls and, as a result, help change the narrative of their life.
We are committed to addressing any barriers preventing talented youth from reaching their highest potential.
