That's why we strive to be Idealistic Leaders.

Our core values of idealistic leadership guide our work and drive our success:

1
Strive to be DELIGHTFUL!

People who constantly exceed expectations are not only delightful; they are ALWAYS the most successful.

2
ENERGIZE those in your presence.

Positive energy creates positive energy. Almost anyone can identify problems and weaknesses, learn to identify solutions and take positive action.

3
Keep your EYES ON THE PRIZE.

Remember the College Possible mission and remember our students. You must do WHATEVER it takes to support our students. Results matter more than anything else. You may never have another opportunity to do such meaningful work.

4
CHALLENGE CYNICISM whenever you encounter it.

You must have faith that positive change is possible, and actively work to make it happen. Never, ever doubt that you can help change the world.

5
MOCCASIN the lives of others.

Imagine life in someone else’s moccasins.

6
Learn to be GRATEFUL.

No one in this world makes it on her or his own. Seek opportunities to express your gratitude. Always thank people, and remember that hundreds of people have given time, money and other resources to make our work possible.

7
HAVE FUN!

Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be. Attitude is everything. Decide to laugh and be happy.

Our idealistic leaders in action!

Our students become graduates at 5 times the rates of their low-income peers.
