"When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination, the whole world opens up to you."-Susan Sarandon

      Compassion, joy, collaboration, equity, and empowering others inspire what we do. Through our collaborative consulting with community organizations and educational stakeholders, we help build sustainable policy and programs to engage hearts and minds with cultural competence, empathy, creativity, and critical thinking. We  offer professional development trainings, program and policy development, as well as hands on  modeling, directing, organizing and teamwork to help integrate social justice, STEAM, educational best practices and empathy development across the curriculum at schools. We also engage with community groups to organize and direct community projects bringing diverse members together to enhance local neighborhoods.
