220 stands for
Why We Started 220
This company is a reflection of our personal journey.
As brothers growing up, we were fortunate to learn the skills youth need to be successful. But we learned many of these skills outside of the classroom- from our parents, family, teachers we were lucky to have, coaches, mentors and extracurricular experiences.
These skills helped us carve our own path and live out our dream of becoming entrepreneurs.
But we realized that we were the exception- that many youth, especially from underprivileged backgrounds, were not getting this "education" because it isn't part of the Core 40 curriculum.
Youth are always going to be starting in different places, with advantages or disadvantages. But that doesn't mean they don't have equally high potential, and the equalizer to help them get there should be education.
We wanted to create a formal curriculum around the skills we were fortunate to learn, and that every youth needs to learn, to thrive in work and life.
Every youth has the ability to create their 220 (Second-To-None Life), and that's exactly what we try to help them do through our courses and services.
People thought we were nuts to leave banking and consulting jobs to start 220. You know what we realized in the process? Doing what we love made it worth it to rewrite that script.
Waking up every day to help students overcome their own limiting beliefs, teaching them to design, create and live their lives based on passion, excitement and fulfillment and seeing their faces when they begin to understand what’s possible in their life…THAT’S what gets us out of bed.
We work tirelessly to create opportunities for students to recognize and realize their 220 Life. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
