A successful educational experience - one that inspires and makes one want to learn more, to value education - is not solely about what happens inside the school walls. Simply put, school success and achievement outcomes are deeply affected by many factors that are outside of a school’s control. Impact360 is a committed partner in lives of its students.

  • It is about the interactions between what happens at home, in the classroom, in the neighborhood, and during the summer.
  • It is about language patterns, family expectations and values, extended learning opportunities, how parents advocate for their children and how children learn to advocate for themselves.
  • It is about access to opportunities and resources that support, foster, and encourage an identity as a learner.


Impact360 was intentionally created to provide access to those out-of-school factors that have a profound impact on school success.

  • Impact360 is an organized ecosystem of resources and opportunities working to help low-income, minority students capitalize on education through complimentary, long-term, intensive after-school and summer programs.
  • Students join in 6th grade and spend seven consecutive years with Impact360, benefiting significantly from the support of caring, professional staff that engages with their families, teachers, and school administrators.
  • Programming is year-round.
  • Each student receives 450 hours of support each year.
  • Impact360 provides access to resources and opportunities in three core areas: Academics, Health & Wellness, and Life-Skills.


Educational success will not be accidental; it will have to be intentionally sought out and it is unlikely to be the result of a single individual or occur in a day or a year.

  • Educational Success will be a collaborative effort, spanning people, organizations, and agencies and success will come over many years.
  • mapct360 imagines itself as part of such work.
  • Ultimately, the achievement of the mission is a collaborative endeavor, an organized network of complimentary resources, an ecosystem, that empower young students to reimagine themselves as successful students who belongs in school, do well in school, and see college as a necessary and realistic next step.
