Gifted aims to produce first-generation college graduates and marketplace leaders from low-income communities across America. Launched in Atlanta with two part-time staff in 2012, the organization’s first group of 30 students earned more than $2.3 million in scholarships and subsidized educational funding. Using a four-stage approach to matriculating students from high school to college to the workforce, the organization intends to replicate its model in cities across the U.S. Gifted hopes to become a lever for eradicating poverty among low-income families while producing the next generation of marketplace leaders.
