Generation InFocus



Generation InFocus implements School Day labs, After School and Summer Activity programs for students Pre K-12. We use project-based learning to engage young minds and foster career champions.


All of our thoughts, beliefs, desires, and hopes are centered on the ideology that with the proper knowledge and support, children can do anything. We strive to push the boundaries of what students believe they are able to do and ultimately be. Our hope is to walk alongside the youth as memories of our hands on, minds on challenges fuel their spirit of courage. We hope they will say it was with Generation InFocus that they first began to believe that there are no limits to what they can accomplish. As a result, we expect our children to be bold in The pursuit of STEAM careers, tackling the world’s toughest challenges and believing they can start now.


Raised in North Carolina, Carol moved to Atlanta in the early 2000s to work in the broadcasting industry. However, Carol has always worked with nonprofits because her family brought her up to serve others. When a friend introduced her to Rashid, the founder of TLW, she found a new calling, a calling that finds her now the Executive Director of TLW. She plans to work on ways to position the organization to continue to be a leader in the movement of urban agriculture, while supporting small urban farmers and community farming groups.
