Emerging Leader: Founder and CEO Karim Abouelnaga

Mission: Practice Makes Perfect (PMP) strives to redefine the summer learning experience and eliminate the summer learning loss for K-12 students using a "near-peer" mentorship model. Through a unique multi-relational approach, PMP strategically matches academically struggling elementary and middle school students with older, higher achieving mentor peers from the same inner-city neighborhoods. Trained college interns and certified teachers supervise the "near-peer" relationship for a five-week, full-day academic experience.
