We love
what we do.

It's all about the collective.

We work with movers and shakers, builders and breakers – always asking ourselves, how can we better equip young people to be their best selves and become agents of change in their communities? We don’t have all of the answers, but we surround ourselves with people just as committed as we are to finding them.

Connection.

There’s power in connection. When students connect to the world outside the classroom,  a new reality becomes possible.  In a world starved for meaningful relationships, the most valuable thing we provide is the opportunity to work, learn, and grow with other people. So whenever possible, we do just that.

Shipping

For us, shipping is almost sacred.  We know that real entrepreneurs don’t leave their brilliance in the basement to collect dust. They let their work out into the world to breathe, be seen, and get better.

They don’t wait until things are perfect. They ship, and then they learn. It’s the same posture we encourage students to develop, because we know that authentic learning happens when the work gets out of the building and connects us with other human beings.

Celebration

We really like a good party. We know what a spirit of celebration can do for a community, a school culture, an individual learner.  We’re all about celebrating the little flops and the big wins, young people discovering new skills, and the teachers growing in their practice. Celebration fuels us and keeps us moving forward.
