Learn more about what we do and who we are.

“Transformation happens when role models become real models”

We are honored to play a role in the development of the leaders of tomorrow.  Our mission is to embolden change by building their capacity and empowering them to stand in their truth and know their worth. 

We do this by creating a leadership cohort of accomplished site leaders known as Technical Assistance (TA) Fellows.  These fellows are tasked with facilitating dialogue that inspires action to integrate the Quality Standards for Expanded Learning at their sites and organizations to continuously improve the quality of their programs.
