CityThink is determined to help our students’ achieve their full potential and build a brighter future. We recognize the structural disparities our city’s youth encounter on a daily basis, and we appreciate, their perseverance to overcome such obstacles they shouldn’t have to face at such a young age. At Think Academy, we work with youth from some of our city’s most marginalized and impoverished neighborhoods. By simplifying some of life’s complexities, we transform the way our students think about themselves and their communities.
Today, more than ever, there is an urgent dire need to stop a vicious cycle of mediocracy and complacency that plagues some of our city’s impoverished youth. We intend to empower our students with the educational learning and capacity building resources necessary make a positive social impact in their respective communities. CityThink alleviates the impoverished state of mind through the application of an innovative curriculum that cultivates our youth’s commitment to service leadership, promotes self-sufficiency through financial literacy, and develops them into social entrepreneurs. Collectively, we improve the life chances of our city’s future generations.
