Mission Statement

The Future Project is a new national movement to dramatically transform education by building a world in which every student is inspired. Our mission is to give all students the opportunity to have a partner and project in inspiration for every year of high school.

Description

The Future Project is the new national movement to inspire America--starting in our nation's public schools. We will launch in October 2011 in high schools in New York, New Haven, and Washington, D.C. We unite students in urban public high schools with volunteers from their community--young professionals and students at nearby colleges and graduate schools--in partnerships and teams and challenge each pair to spend one year building a passion-inspired project that makes a powerful difference in their school or community. During weekly, 90-minute meetings, students also imagine and pursue inspired futures, whether admission to college or leaps forward in leadership or grades. Above all, both partners discover what moves them--and learn to channel it for good.
