Vision and Values


Sense of Possibility

We believe in the extraordinary potential of all children and in our collective potential to realize our aspirations, and so we act with courage, boldness, urgency and  perseverance in pursuit of transformational impact.

Locally Rooted and Globally Informed

We value the enormous assets in the communities where we work, immerse ourselves in local perspectives, needs and opportunities, and work in deep partnership with students, families, educators, and community members—all while also seeking to build our understanding of what is possible based on insights from outside of our communities and countries.

Constant Learning

We commit to continuous education, reflection, and improvement as the foundation for the transformational leadership we strive to develop.

Diversity and Inclusiveness

We seek to ensure full participation of people from all cultures and backgrounds, and we believe those who have themselves experienced the inequities we’re working to address should guide and lead this work.


In recognition of our shared humanity and interconnectedness, we work with generosity and compassion to help each other develop and grow. 

25-Year Vision
In 2040, communities in every part of the world are enabling all their children to have the education, support and opportunity to shape a better future for themselves and all of us. These communities are inspiring and informing a worldwide movement to achieve this everywhere.
