Our Vision

We believe in education. We believe in finding ways to provide more access to education for more people.

To make the world better.

York is known for its “Maker’s Spirit”, home of manufacturing giants both old and new – from York Peppermint Patties and Stauffer Biscuit Company to York International HVAC, Harley Davidson and many more. These days, the city’s entrepreneurial drive can be felt through its streets lined with local businesses.
