To help break cycles of inequality, we empower the next generation to reach their full potential through higher education.
Inspired by the spirit of New York, our hometown since 1941, Coach celebrates the courage to be real. But we recognize that for some, there are systemic barriers to achieving their dreams. We believe that by providing young people with access to higher education, we can help break down those barriers for all.
Grounded in our belief that all should be empowered to be their true selves, we help students discover their paths and purpose so they can live authentically—and inspire others to do the same.
