Thank you for learning more about The Future Begins Today!

I’ve been privileged to witness the many opportunities that this academic support organization has offered Troy’s young people. It’s my hope that TFBT can become something that many more families experience, whether through providing resources or through receiving them. Together, we are making students’ plans, aspirations and goals a reality and equipping them to be successful in the paths that they pursue. Our community’s involvement, whether as program participants, advocates, partners or volunteers have allowed us to now impact more than 1,200 Troy students each year through our outreach. Thank you!
