OUR APPROACH TO CHANGE
Develop Cultural Competency
Bridge the gap in traditional teacher training programs to equip educators with tools to engage in identity development, implicit bias training, and relationships building with historically-marginalized intersecting identities.
Uplift Youth & Teacher Power
Build alliances & support structures with teachers to enhance mutually beneficial student-teacher relationships, personal agency, and emotional & physically safe classrooms.
Shift School Discipline Practices
Work with teachers, school administration, and community members to develop equity-minded learning spaces, decrease disciplinary gaps, and minimize student referrals to law enforcement.
