Become a part of changing lives through systems thinking.

Our goal is to increase the number of schools, districts and organizations that are actively incorporating systems thinking into teaching, leading and learning. Our mission is to increase the capacity of educators to deliver academic and lifetime benefits to students through the effective application of systems thinking in classroom instruction and school improvement. From the classroom to the boardroom, our aim is to ensure that all children and adults have the opportunity to develop their systems thinking capacities so that they can become successful in school and in life.

To make this happen, we need help from donors like you.
