Innovative and Courageous Solutions in Education

Our Why

Within the changing landscape of education are opportunities for leaders to work within budget constraints to creatively meet the needs of  students, educators, and families. Kids deserve great schools and organizations that provide continuity of learning regardless of the physical environment or limited resources. Schools and youth-serving organizations deserve high quality supports and resources, educators crave genuine professional learning experiences, and students need engaging and authentic instruction. Families need the supports, ideas, and resources to help their children with their education, especially during remote learning.
