Mission: Building capacity and excellence in our neighborhoods by connecting them to your caring faith community. Selfless Ambition is a faith-based, grass roots, charitable corporation that has set its sights on eradication of achievement gap in our schools. This gap has been a persistent and growing problem in our local schools. Low reading and math achievement are still the rule for many children of color. In today's knowledge economy, failure in school condemns children to be leading candidates for poverty and prison as adults. As a community we can no longer condone mass school failure. We must leverage every possible resource to offer those children a chance at a productive and rewarding future.
