"Where Opportunity meets Change"
Project Optimism Inc.
Project Optimism Inc. is a newly established (501c3) nonprofit organization founded by Armoni Easley and Ishmael Pruitt. They think of the community as a giant project. Working on this project is a diverse group of community members who all bring a unique skill set to the table to achieve desired results. Their plan is to develop programs and services with the help of the community to meet community needs.
To be the Catalyst that will properly equip community members with an optimistic mindset to be productive contributors to society.
The founders have created an evidence-based program called "Sankofa Project" which aligns college students and recent graduates with at-risk youth, as mentors. They will use evidence-based practices to develop them into young adults, committed to learning and ready to contribute to the world.
There are multiple ways to support and help create change. One of the ways Project Optimism Inc. directly raises funds to sustain opportunities is by hosting huge events. These fun filled events bring people together to have a good time while achieving to meet a specific need in the community.
