"The Mouse Club was much more than just a television show, it was a performing arts, entrepreneurship, and leadership academy." - Dale Godboldo
The MMC's breeding ground for success can be replicated and enhanced to reach millions of young people as an inspiration, and example, of the power of sustained institutional support for our youth.
Always In The Club was formed as a platform to provide funding to outstanding non-profits dedicated to youth education and arts, and provide scholarships and entrepreneurial training for young people through partnerships with both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
But AITC is more than a mission, it's a family. Our motto - Once in the club... Always In The Club
Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s landmark “I Have a Dream” speech, INROADS founder Frank C. Carr quit his executive-level corporate day job and committed to taking swift and decisive action to increase ethnically diverse employees in corporate management in the U.S., and to help change the way these candidates gained entry into the business world.
INROADS is the leader in this space, impacting the lives of over 154,000 youth; has over 28 offices serving nearly 2,000 interns at over 200 companies; and has over 28,000 alumni worldwide who have benefitted from its programs over its almost 50 years of operating.
Project:NOW recently announced its support of INROADS through Project:NOW co-founding partner, The Arthur Wylie Entrepreneurship & Leadership Fund.
AWF accomplishes its mission through international partnerships that financially support programs pairing promising young talent with leaders in the communities we target. 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.
Project:NOW partner The Beacon Network is a unique educational model within Denver Public Schools, committed to the high achievement and growth of every student. We are part of an Innovation Management Organization that allows for an Executive Principal to oversee the two schools currently in the network — Kepner Beacon Middle School and Grant Beacon Middle School. The Beacon Network has the potential for future growth and may add more schools.
Beacon schools provide a college preparatory program of study that sets high expectations and requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Through the collaborative work of students, staff, families and community partners, Beacon schools bring together diverse communities and prepare students with the academic knowledge and 21st century leadership skills necessary for college and career success.
