OUR PARTNERS

In 2022, Research Your Health, Cox Media, Pyramid Technology Solutions (PTS), Baxter Clewis, and DailCare Teletherapy joined forces with Advising Generation Z to launch AdvisingGenz LCC, to provide the technology component that the non-profit needed to become an alternative disciplinary resource for parents and practitioners looking to dismantle the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ by utilizing AdvisingGenz as a restorative practice instead of overly harsh punishment for minor infractions for students 10-24.

COMMUNITY SPONSORS

AGZ has provided thousands of children with access to free after school activities, mentoring, and recreational programs.  This access is made possible through the generous donations of community leaders like you. Our goal is to raise $800,000 for ongoing program support. Studies show that children struggling emotionally, who participate in group activities, are more likely to succeed as adults. We hope to give our children this same advantage in life.
