Unable to figure out the word in this video. I'm doing some translation and here's the link to the video. I've replayed several times but still cannot figure out the word around 01:37-01:41 when he said, " And now we want to once again _____, and start raising money to send some of these students to college." I would really appreciate it if someone can tell me what the word is.

Yeah what Ryan said, the word is "pivot". To further describe the use, pivot has many definitions. In this context it means "the next step in a project or plan" In the video, the man explained that they started a fundraiser and immediately raised some money to send kids to college. The next step is to start summer schools for these kids. This is the pivot. And for that they need to raise more money. Though the man said "gain pivot", I think "make pivot" sounds more natural and it's "more" grammatically correct in my opinion. Don't worry about it though. Even native speakers don't use the word "pivot" this way in daily conversation.
