Alongside our educational partners, we co-construct learning experiences centered in collaboration and oriented toward creating sustainable and impactful systemic change. Responsive to the ever-changing field, we offer inclusive, innovative, and interdisciplinary programs framed by evidence-based theory and deeply embedded in practice. Our work is informed by liberatory practices in school and community learning spaces, constructivist pedagogies, and the relational nature of teaching and learning.
