Our Mission

Mobilized through a volunteer network of educators, mentors, sports development professionals, the mission of One Plus One Equals U, Inc. (1+1=U, Inc.) serves to impact the lives of teens, ages 13-19, by way of high school completion and post-secondary educational attainment.  Through application and implementation of the, “whole child” curricula, 1+1=U, Inc. encourages participants to develop academic scholarship, community engagement in world leadership, self-discipline, integrity and responsibility.  The organization aims to impact the lives of its student athletes through preparation and admission to colleges, universities, technical/vocational schools, preparatory military academies, and / or boarding schools. 


1+1=U, Inc. is a BBB ® Accredited 501 (c) 3 organization that targets middle and high school student athletes who seek discipline, encouragement and mentorship as they pursue their educational goals.

Our young women, who we call U Girls and our young men, who we call U Guys, participate in various activities geared towards boosting academic and personal achievement. Each student participating in the 1 + 1 = U program must develop a set of personal goals which further assists with self-development and self-actualization.
