Collaborators & Supported


Success can come from anyone

Our mission is simple. Empower the future leaders of our community. There are individuals who grew up thinking that they won’t amount much because of where they came from and their background. We think differently. There is strength in our past and we celebrate the unique traits that each person brings. We empower all the talent in South Auckland to see their true potential, dream higher, and achieve success whatever that looks like to them. As Dr. Seuss puts it, “You can’t judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree” but give that fish an ocean and watch it swim past the horizon.
