Mission Statement

An Organization Founded to Expedite Change Equity Now's efforts are focused on discovering, planning and implementing innovative solutions for pathways of building equity in the community. Our efforts are strategically focused on the growing number of families fighting for economic and educational equity.

Description

At Equity Now, we believe that all students can succeed and that developing the executive functioning skills and positive mindsets of children and young adults contributes to strong, vibrant communities-outcomes that benefit all of us. Serving students from kindergarten to grade 8, Legends Fellows support students in the classroom with the ABCs of Academic Success - Attendance, Behavior and Culture.

Equity Now deploys a diverse team of Legends Fellows to serve full-time alongside teachers at Legends Charter School. These student success coaches, who are Service Year members, develop positive relationships with students that strengthen academic and social-emotional skills that drive success in school, work and life.
