The Sonoran Initiative

Transforming Lives in Urban Communities

Apply to our upcoming cohort.


TSI selects dynamic youth (ages 18-24) from underserved communities who have passion, ambition, grit and drive, yet lack access to resources and opportunity. TSI provides our “Fellows” coaching, mentoring, professional development, entrepreneurial venture guidance, and apprenticeship matching with the ultimate outcome of higher level income ascension.

Elevate your Exposure

In collaboration with local artists, designers, and performers our Fellows will create large scale site-specific works of art in their communities.

Life-shifting opportunities

We curate higher level income opportunities through education and exposure in the fields of technology, business/finance and the arts; allowing our Fellows to break the generational cycle of poverty and begin a new legacy of sustainable wealth creation.

Create economic leverage

You'll create economic leverage with an established, highly influential and professional network dedicated to creating career pipelines into their respective industries.
