About Us

The As One We Can Foundation was founded in 2008 in response to the rise of violent behavior among youth, and the disproportionate dropout and unemployment rates among minorities. Our passion was to create a way to work with youth in order to help them be proactive and prepare for their future. Our staff works with high school students to cultivate dreams, establish goals, and show them how to work towards them.

As One We Can's programs focus on education and skills training. We teach students to value their high school and college education, even if they feel it should not be taken seriously. We show them that the road to a successful future is impossible to travel down without knowledge or skills. Our programs are centered around helping students deepen their understanding of life and education, and broadening their visions for the future.
