Project:NOW is a non-profit initiative that stresses the urgency of NOW in executing innovative programs that leverage public and private partnerships, scholarships, mentorship, arts training, and media to increase literacy, college acceptance rates, and entrepreneurial pursuits in the underserved communities we target.
Project:NOW works to meet the Sustainable Development Goals that global leaders agreed to for a better world by 2030. Its mission is to help underserved youth reach Universal Quality Education (#Goal4) and Decent Work and Economic Growth (#Goal8).
Project:NOW was initially launched in 2014 by actor/entrepreneur Dale Godboldo (People v. OJ Simpson, All New Mickey Mouse Club) and entrepreneur/author Arthur Wylie (Only The Crazy and Fearless WIN BIG!), with support from both Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
Project:NOW is a program of Always In The Club Foundation and fiscally sponsored by International Arts & Philanthropy Foundation, Inc. (a 501c3). Project:NOW spotlights and supports programs Taking Urgent Action To Educate Our Youth, including INROADS, Arvada K-8 (a Jeffco Public School), and Arthur Wylie Entrepreneurship & Leadership Fund, among other outstanding organizations and programs.
Come inside our 2018 fundraiser where we honored actor/philanthropist MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY for his work in underserved communities, and we heard from guest speaker ASHTON KUTCHER who spoke about his passion for Social Entrepreneurship as a way to make a meaningful impact on the world.
Project:NOW was proud to present a check to INROADS at its 2018 Benefit Gala, in support of its programs to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. INROADS is nationally recognized for preparing underserved youth for career success. See Blog Post HERE.
Hosted by NSYNC’s Joey Fatone, Mouseketeers from all seven seasons of the ‘All New’ Mickey Mouse Club reunited at our 2019 #MMC30 fundraiser – an epic weekend of events promoting youth education, diversity, and inclusion. Students who completed our Project:NOW Service Learning Program were treated to a Walt Disney World vacation during the event as a reward for completing the program. Our goal was to help expose the kids to a wider a view of the world through a once-in-a-lifetime Disney experience. See #MMC30 Recap HERE >>>>>>
