About Our Vision and Long-Term Goals
At 220, our vision is to help increase the number of youth who are able to achieve their second-to-none potential. This means they are thriving in their work + income, health + lifestyle, and key relationships.
This vision has profound ripple effects. By helping individuals live up to their full potential, we are helping to:
- Break the cycle of poverty
- Empower minorities
- Elevate the workforce
- Grow the economy and reduce dependence on federal funding
- Reduce violence and crime and increase safety in all neighborhoods
- Foster innovation to solve local, regional, national and global problems
- Establish stable family lives
- Create leaders for their siblings, peers, parents and communities
- Improve educational outcomes and school culture
- Reduce dependence on a college education to achieve successful careers and income equality
The 220 Purpose and Our Guiding Values
220 partners with workforce development agencies, Job Corps centers, large out-of-school- time organizations, visionary educational institutions and imaginative foundations to create the local and global leaders of tomorrow. We do this work with a world-class remote team of extremely motivated, highly skilled go-getters who want to change the world. This allows us to create cutting-edge, transformational courses and programs for youth and the organizations serving them.
Why do we do what we do? We do this work because it is our purpose. Our life journeys and passions have shown us that anything is possible with the right mindset and “education,” so there is no reason for any youth or anyone to suffer. We can help end suffering by empowering every youth with the mindset and skills he or she needs to create his or her own 220 life, become a leader, creator or entrepreneur, and change the world.
We strive to accomplish our purpose by aligning our work with our values. Our values help our team understand what we stand for and provide the guidance we need to help us achieve our company’s goals. Our values are:
- Create the Second-to-None Education
- Achieve 220 Ownership
- Be a 220 Team Player
- Empower a 220 Mindset
- Live Your 220 Life
