The Education Collaborative was founded in September 2020 by Agha Haider, a then senior at Whitfield School in St. Louis, Missouri. Agha began his first 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Literacy Initiative, at the age of 13. Since Agha founded the Literacy Initiative in 2017, the organization has distributed over 35,000 books, supported over 27,000 disadvantaged youth, and provided over 6,000 meals to economically disadvantaged families. 


After having the opportunity to work under the Literacy Initiative for 4 years, Agha decided that he wanted to do something even bigger and that's how The Education Collaborative was born. 

The Education Collaborative is an international non-profit organization focused on bridging the achievement gap by fostering programs supporting disadvantaged youth. Through our programming, we work to provide students with the opportunity to express themselves creatively and become successful individuals within their greater community.


With the motto "Together Everyone Connects", The Education Collaborative works to connects professionals with disadvantaged youth to provide them with an opportunity to further grow specific skills.

Join us and help us build a better and brighter future for students across the world.
