The Academy Group Starts Youth Programming at Blue Lacuna
The Academy Group is an organization co-founded by Mark Walter, a founder and CEO of investment firm Guggenheim Partners, and NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson, president of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Academy Group has partnered with Blue Lacuna powered by Ignite Technology and Innovation.
The 2018 cohort was launched in the space this past Saturday. The Academy Group provides hundreds of youth the opportunity to go from the excluded to the exceptional. Fueled by profits from businesses founders Mark and Kimbra Walter have contributed, the Academy Group provides academic support, mentoring and work experience to scholars during a 14-year-journey from fourth grade to career. The Academy Group guarantees students who meet program requirements a job post college graduation.
We look forward to the partnership and hope to add value to the mission of the organization.
