Worldwide UnderGround was birthed from the Charter School movement in the U.S., with Green Dot Public Schools, established in 2000 with our first school, Ánimo Leadership. Green Dot currently operates 28 college prep charter schools throughout Los Angeles, California, Washington State and Memphis, Tennessee with 8 schools ranking in the top 100 high schools in the United States, (US News and World Report). Green Dot is also featured in the 2010 movie Waiting for Superman, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim – AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH.
As a founding member of Green Dot, JP Eaglin was able to create and direct several programs that essentially helped build the educational system of his dreams. In doing this he held several positions over the years: Chief Technology Officer, Art & Music Director, After School Program Director, Leadership Coordinator, Community Organizer, and Teacher.
