About Tomorrow's Purpose

Tomorrow's Purpose is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose mission is to promote intellectual growth and development of youth by equipping them with supportive resources and experiences that encourages students to explore, develop, design, and exhibit their efforts before scholastic and non-scholastic audiences.

Our Commitment reflects the process and procedures we use to build a network of continuing education within and after each program. This program creates an ongoing business model that teaches students not only to work for wealth but also to create their own through investment in themselves.
