Professional Development

We are partnering with educators to ignite a new movement to bring authenticity-based social-emotional learning to school communities across the country.

Our training workshops, education conferences, and year-long partnerships focus on the role of authenticity and creativity in children's lives and its key role in the development as lifelong learners.
