Two young men, Michael Lynch and Michael Casper, grew up in South Sacramento, graduated from Valley High School, earned four year college degrees, and then launched successful careers in California’s legislature and in banking. They returned to their neighborhood to help the thousands of students facing challenging environments, achieve their fullest potential. So, the two Michaels started Improve Your Tomorrow to guide and counsel high school students on attending college.
