Our Vision
S.H.I.N.E (Sending Help in Neighborhoods Everywhere)

SHINE began with the concept that, if you can build a structured organization, you can make any amount of change. The original acronym of SHINE, Sending Help in Neighborhoods Everywhere, perfectly characterizes our ambition to make direct change in any setting we can find individuals interested in helping their community – which, for us, is everywhere.

Providing Students an Opportunity to Follow Their Dreams​

SHINE 4 Education was founded by Elijah Hernandez. After creating educational programs in high school and teaching over 1000 students worldwide, he founded SHINE with the intention to give students the same opportunity he had to follow his dreams.

“SHINE 4 Education is founded on the concept that a student, if given the right resources and opportunity, can follow their dreams and have a career they are passionate about.”
