Mission

To unlock human potential through learning by catalyzing people, ideas and systems— so every individual thrives and contributes in a changing and interdependent world.

Vision

We imagine a future of universal well-being: where all people have the literacies, competencies and mindsets to live purpose-filled and opportunity-filled lives for themselves, their families, communities and societies.

Our Values

Every day, we aspire to be….
  1. 1

    Compassionate Changemakers

    Compassion for our fellow human beings drives us to action, and we push ourselves to have deeper positive impact with every action we take.
  2. 2

    Justice Seekers

    We refuse to yield to systemic inequities and work to ensure all people, particularly those who lack opportunity from birth, have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
  3. 3

    Inclusive Collaborators

    We actively seek diverse voices and co-create solutions with local communities because we know we don’t have all the answers. We openly share our knowledge with others.
  4. 4

    Courageous Learners

    We are open-minded and curious. We take courageous action and, given the complexity of the systems in which we work, we accept failures. No matter the outcome, we will be mindful and reflect and learn.
  5. 5

    Authentic Communicators

    We strive to be present. We show up authentically as our whole selves and listen, question, and speak with trust, candor, and respect.

    Grateful Celebrators

    We cheer for our team, partners, and communities. We bring joy and we live in gratitude — recognizing the great privilege and responsibility we have.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that people, young and old, are basically good and fundamentally capable.
  • We believe that healthy societies are created when individuals, families, and communities thrive.
  • We believe that one of the fundamental elements of thriving is the opportunity to learn and that this happens from birth, throughout life, in the entire context of one’s life and often in relationship with one another.
  • We believe that unlocking human potential is inherently multi-generational, and that education and economic advancement can significantly change a family's future for generations.
  • We believe a world of equitable, universal well-being requires developing collective, compassionate and entrepreneurial leadership.
