Taking Urgent Action To Educate Our Youth
In partnership with Arthur Wylie Foundation (AWF) and Cherokee Gives Back, Project:NOW has developed W.I.S.E. entrepreneurship-learning curriculums through international partnerships that financially support programs pairing promising young talent with leaders in the communities we target.
Our mission is to provide robust educational support and internships to emerging entrepreneurs and global leaders. Upon graduation, students will have the tools to turn their ideas into successful and sustainable business ventures.
AWF was founded by social entrepreneur and Best Selling book author, Arthur Wylie, who after starting in his dorm room over 20 years ago, went on to oversee 1,200 clients and $750 million in assets, transactions, insurance, real estate, and intellectual properties. Wylie’s best-selling book – Only the Crazy and Fearless Win BIG! – has become a social movement and often referred to in pop culture as one of the top business and personal growth books ever written. This has lead to over 100 speaking engagements internationally, including a featured TED Talk.
AWF/Project:NOW also supports INROADS and their programs to prepare underserve youth for career success. The INROADS mission is to develop and place talented minority youth in business and industry and prepare them for corporate and community leadership. INROADS is an international organization with over 28 offices serving nearly 2,000 Interns at over 200 companies.
Through funds raised at a Project:NOW event, we made a contribution to INROADS during its 2018 Benefit Gala.
