Education in the United States
There is a deep learning gap across the country, with students of color and those from low-income backgrounds the furthest from opportunities to succeed. In K-12 education we aim to address this inequity by reimagining schools so they better match the needs of Black and Latino students. We also work to increase the number of diverse educators prepared to guide and accelerate learning. In higher education, we focus on building the support system that can help students persist through college and earn a degree.
Health in the United States
It’s exciting when a community can shift its focus from treating illness to promoting wellness. For this to happen, we need a variety of partners that span sectors working together to improve health and wellness.
Community-based solutions are pragmatic and sustainable — we see that in our regional work in Central Texas and Greater Boston. Proximity to these areas enables us to build strong partnerships that affect community change and to share the responsibility of solving problems.
