A Learning Stance
We take pride in supporting schools, businesses, governments, and communities in identifying, developing and retaining talent among our youth. We address harmful employee and student bias by immersing clients in collaborative learning processes that help them identify and solve communication breakdowns. Through our method, Honoring Stories and Integrating Curriculum™, we work with others to create, document and recreate systems that produce successful products and services for our community. We transform our community from the inside out.
Our mission is to transform our deepest divides through informed communication among all cultures and sectors that helps everyone build stronger bridges and thriving communities. "The history of man is the history of crimes, and history can repeat. So the information is a defense. Through this, we can build, we must build, a defense against repetition." Simon Wiesenthal.
Our Ethnodrama practices integrate the collaborative study of social issues by collecting interviews with people from diverse backgrounds in our community to facilitate dialogue with the many cultures towards problem-solving and informed collective action.
We encourage students to understand that they always have something to learn from people of every background and that people always have something to learn from them.
We motivate students to be strong relationship-builders who value and respect all people and can find common ground with anyone, regardless of any cultural difference. They understand how social inequalities work and do their part to carefully navigate those inequalities' strain on relationships.
