Jim Hollandsworth/The Path Project
The Path Project exists to empower Latino children growing up in at-risk mobile home park communities to find the path to graduation and a plan for their future. They do this by partnering with mobile home park owners, local schools, churches and businesses. Their model is to open a community center inside the mobile home park so all the kids in the community can walk there. They have a paid teacher who runs after-school homework, literacy and mentoring programs – all with the goal of helping the kids stay on track academically and graduate high school. The graduation rate for Latino students in GA is around 60% and it’s even lower for kids growing up in mobile home parks. They currently operate in seven (7) mobile home communities – 6 in Atlanta and 1 in Nashville, TN. Their vision is to scale their model to dozens of mobile home parks across the Southeast and see thousands of kids graduate high school and pursue their dreams!
About Tiffany Krumins:
Tiffany Krumins is the CEO, founder and inventor of the Ava the Elephant® brand. Ava the Elephant is a talking children’s medicine dispenser that takes the fear and anxiety out of administering medicine to children.
Tiffany’s passion for helping children has been evident through her years of experience, including the work she’s done with children who have special needs and with childhood cancer patients. It was that same passion which brought Ava the Elephant to life! She realized no product on the market resolved the common problem of giving children medicine. She took matters into her own hands and created the first Ava the Elephant from sponges, fabric and a store bought medicine dropper. After seeing the profound effect it had on children she knew she was onto something.
After her life changing experience on ABC’s “Shark Tank” she returned home with her investment from Barbara Corcoran and started the process of launching a product. In the midst of it all, Tiffany was diagnosed with cancer three months after the show (at the age of 27). This personal heartbreak only made her passion to help sick children even stronger.
