What We Do

We are committed to equitable and inclusive learning environments for all learners. We work with teachers, schools, after-school providers, communities, and other organizations to transform the learning environment into one where all learners are honored and challenged to be whole people actively involved in building a just present and future. We bend technology into a key component of this work, taking the challenges of COVID-19 and working to create opportunities for overcoming the barriers that hold learners back.
