We’re innovators, advocates, and policy nerds. We’re committed to improving education for all kids and we have fun along the way.

To accomplish our vision we are focused on three key actions: 1) equipping and elevating more diverse voices to champion change, 2) ensuring stakeholders advocate for equitable practices, elect effective policymakers, and hold officials accountable for student outcomes, and 3) elevating school board governance by supporting sitting Trustees and preparing more candidates to govern effectively.

The enduring aspect of our work is not the programming itself, but the capacity for change that we build—the knowledge, skills, identities, and relationships—that will sustain civic engagement long after a program ends.
