Sarad Davenport was the founding director of the, Department of Education funded, Charlottesville Promise Neighborhood, also known as City of Promise. Currently, Sarad serves as the Sr. Manager for Practice Innovation for the Communities In Schools National Office in Arlington, Virginia, an organization that has a mission to empower over 1.6 million students, in 2,300 schools, in 26 states plus the District of Columbia, to stay in school and achieve in life. When Sarad is not working or spending time with his family, he is an entrepreneur, leading Davenport Strategic Innovation and Design (DSID), a design thinking and project management consulting firm. One of Sarad's favorite quotes comes from Howard Thurman, who wrote in his book 'Jesus and the Disinherited', “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
