For over three decades, our leadership has implemented educational practices resulting in sustainable growth on the leading indicators of youth wellness.

In 2015, we began a partnership journey with the Raikes Foundation when we were selected to be part of the Building Equitable Learning Environments (BELE) Network in the fall of 2015. We entered as Teaching Excellence Network (TEN) and our main goal was to scale our online teacher effectiveness platform. Since then, TEN has led nearly 400 schools in over 60 districts nationwide through an innovative, transformational process of professional development informed directly by the priorities of community stakeholders. We then shifted our focus to directly impact marginalized youth through the classroom and created Community Responsive Education (CRE). CRE centers equity as the solution to the most pressing challenges in education. The Youth Wellness Movement (YWM) is our main project aimed at repurposing youth education to focus on wellness.
