About Us

The driving forces of Othea

Striving for impact from New York City, which is home to 657 high schools and over 900K students.  

Othea works with Title 1 schools (where 40% or more students are low-income) to source & manage exceptional extracurriculars focused on early career-building for their students. We do the grunt work, so guidance counselors and educators can focus on what they do best.
