About us

Our Perspective

The vast inequality we see around us is the result of systemic barriers to opportunity and advancement.

These inequities cannot be addressed with an individual lens. Problems must be solved on a systemic level, bringing capital together with practice and narrative change to create educational and economic opportunities that enable agency for individuals and communities.

Systemic barriers need more than siloed initiatives.
They need collective action.

Our mission

Our mission is to seed agency and advancement through collective action.


Our vision

All learners and strivers are afforded educational and economic opportunity.

Who we are

We are strategists, operators, and designers, bringing our diverse networks together with deep expertise in education, corporate talent, community engagement, and program management. We are a diverse team of thinkers and doers, united by one perspective: education and economic opportunity are the means, individual and collective agency is the goal.

Building sustainable change, one partnership at a time.

Our core belief

When we find our common goals, and unite under them, we can take aim at the root cause of issues facing the communities we serve.

Lasting social change requires collective action.

“When the social sector prioritizes the interests and goals of communities over individual agendas, all opportunity seekers have a clearer path to success.”
