Who We Are
Mission Focused. Educator Driven. Non Profit.
We support inspired teachers, innovative administrators, and educators of all kinds to maximize their ability to affect positive impact and sustainable change in students, schools and teams.
We inspire transformative learning practices that enhance reflective, critical and systems thinking perspectives with tools that are easy to integrate into any context or classroom and provide the foundation for emerging change agents.
We design experiences, classes and workshops to foster a community of systems thinkers who believe that a sustainable world is our opportunity and responsibility.
More about Compass Education
What We Do
We teach sustainability habits of mind that incorporate the four Compass points and provide a holistic foundation for systemic thinking.
We embrace complexity and encourage action, using systems thinking tools to build better learners and empower change makers.
We meet you where you are at and support your learning journey with personalized instruction, supportive coaching, excellent resources and a committed educator community.
Why We Do It
Our planet and our people are in crisis.
We cannot solve the problems of today with the tools of yesterday. We must evolve our thinking and our practice to generate new outcomes.
The critical and transformational skills developed by the “Compass Toolkit” empower students to not only make a difference, but to do so in a way that values and honors the interconnectedness of our way of life and life on this planet. We believe that when students and their teachers learn to approach complex topics, discuss current events or design service projects using the Compass Toolkit, they learn skills for life that accompany them as they raise families, start businesses and continue contributing positively and thoughtfully to the world.
At a time when systemic issues in healthcare, racial justice and climate change are being increasingly and publicly discussed, Compass Education builds foundational skills critical in developing the change makers of this generation. The time is now!
