Taking Urgent Action To Educate Our Youth
Project:NOW is a non-profit initiative that stresses urgency while executing innovative educational programs that leverage media and events to increase youth literacy, college acceptance rates and entrepreneurship in underserved communities.
We support programs by the Blackhouse Foundation that helps Black creative voices and executives gain a better foothold in media. We are particularly focused on supporting black and Latina women.
The Project:NOW Service Learning program by Arvada K-8 School (a Jeffco Public School) empowers all students and ensuring all students achieve personal and academic excellence.
In partnership with Arthur Wylie Foundation, Project NOW has developed entrepreneurship-learning curriculums to give students the tools to turn their ideas into successful and sustainable business ventures.
As part of the Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy Initiative (AHP), we have helped thousands of young people and socially conscious entrepreneurs learn, grow and thrive through programs and world-class events featuring leaders in business and media. Our efforts with AHP have also helped raise more than $50 million for over 100 charities around the world.
Project:NOW launched in 2014 as an a-political effort supported by Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
Guided by the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, our mission is to help underserved youth reach Universal Quality Education (Goal 4) and attain Decent Work and Economic Growth (Goal 8). We believe that these efforts can lead to Gender Equality (Goal 5), and in general, Reduced Inequalities (Goal 10).
Project:NOW has sponsored or supported hundreds of events in our effort to raise money and awareness for outstanding organizations working to meet the Global Goals.
