“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
Project 16 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas and founded by Jade “Lady Jade” Burrowes.
Our mission is to equip and inspire youth ages 10-16 to realize the broad spectrum of educational paths and career options available to them beyond what they may see in their immediate surroundings. Through our programs and community partnerships, we seek to offer up close access, eye-opening experiences and educational tools to help children and teens aspire higher than their circumstances, and to dream big.
