The Common Ground Foundation empowers & uplifts youth from high potential communities to become future leaders. Our specially curated programs focus on character development, civic engagement, health & wellness, technology, generational wealth, entrepreneurship/career exploration, creative expression, and leadership.
The History of Common Ground
What started in 2012, as taking 23 high school students on a five-day camping trip turned into a four-year high school mentoring program that has extended to college and beyond, now serving over 500 students. Together, they have built a family of mentors, instructors, parents, and volunteers that surround our youth with a village of love and support.
Common Ground Foundation provides a holistic curriculum that encourages our youth to achieve academic excellence while inspiring them to realize their dreams & create an impact in the world. They come to us as dreamers but emerge as DREAMERS & BELIEVERS!

The Philosophy of Common Ground
In my dreams, I see me and all that I can be.
For me, it is no mystery.
I know that I stand on & love my history.
I know that I can be all I want to be because of those who came before me.
I am a believer
I believe in me and the future I can see.
If I am passionate about what I want to be,
If I work hard and always believe,
I know because of the God in me,
My dreams I will achieve.
I am a dreamer and a believer.
