Clarify. Connect. Catalyze.

Mission and Vision

We help education organizations build capacity and deepen their impact by connecting them to the equity-oriented expertise, resources, and hands-on support they need to drive transformational outcomes for students, especially those from underserved communities.

We envision an education ecosystem in which every leader and educator has access to the support they need to create and sustain transformational change for their students and communities, especially those who are most marginalized.

Our Guiding Beliefs

  • Leaders know their organization needs and contexts best, and must have agency to decide what expert support they need to build team capacity.
  • Deep expertise and experience exist in the sector – and by leveraging it wisely, leaders can accelerate impact.
  • By gathering the insights that emerge as leaders and providers work together, we can build our collective understanding of what works, in what context.
