Supporting Education

Inspiring young minds.

We believe every child deserves the opportunity to excel in school and in life. Our founder, George Jenkins, was passionate about helping people, especially children, prepare for opportunities that set them up for success. We are proud to support a variety of educational programs that encourage children’s success in school and spark interest in science, math, technology, the arts, and more.
