About IF Academy

Our mission is to provide quality learning environments for individuals to enrich their lives through K-12 STEM activities and create pathways to Career Technical Education.

Our Vision

 

If we want a nation where our future leaders, neighbors, and workers can solve the complex challenges of today and tomorrow, we have to start by encouraging our youth to ask, “what IF?”. At IF Academy, it is our vision that every child is proficient in STEM fluency, and have an equal opportunity to support a thriving 21st workforce.

It is crucial that we provide the necessary resources for K-12 and individuals pursuing pathways in Career Technical Education, so they emerge into STEM disciplines fully confident in the 4C’s - creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking, which are essential to create STEM capable citizens as entrepreneurs or industry employees.

MEET OUR FOUNDER, YOOFI DOWELL

The IF Academy is owned and operated by Yoofi Dowell. He is a former educator with over 20 years of experience working in Title I Schools and with juvenile offenders, to create and implement academic programming and curricula for students ranging from Toddlers in Pre-Kindergarten through the spectrum of education to undergraduate students in College. 

Transitioning from education to entrepreneurship, Yoofi found his passion in the nonprofit space to help other individuals discover and monetize their passions by use of technology.

The Idea Farm (IF) Academy was developed to answer the question all great ideas start with, "what IF?", and now serves underrepresented individuals in the greater Atlanta community, to close the digital divide through STEM-based curriculum.
