Hi, I'm Karim Abouelnaga
When I was 18 years old, I learned about the achievement gap and the barriers that low-income, immigrant, minority, and first-generation college students faced in pursuit of realizing the American Dream.
As a first-generation American raised by a single mother on government aid, I felt frustrated by the injustices my six siblings and friends were exposed to while growing up in Queens, NY.
In 2010, along with a handful of my classmates, we founded PRACTICE in my Cornell University dorm room.
Today, our team partners with urban school leaders to deliver evidence-based programs that encompass high-dosage tutoring (both online and in-person), culturally-responsive curricula, and software solutions. To date, we have supported more than 50,000 low-income children across the United States and are working to support 1 million by 2030.
