Engaging youth
Changing lives

Everyone is born with talent and drive. But opportunities to fully develop skills and ambitions through high-quality educational experiences are not equally available to all.

Regardless of race, gender, class or native language, young people across the Americas desire and deserve access to the pathways leading to educational attainment, employment, social engagement and economic mobility.  

Our youth engagement program Born to Be aims to unlock the potential of the next generation by breaking down barriers to opportunity and supporting a strong educational environment for all.

We’re going to help this generation become who they were born to be.
