TransformING EdUCATION’s REACH:
We are committed to sharing what we’re learning from our own work and from the experts we partner with along the way.
Accessing Resilience Through Relationships
To say that being an educator in today's sociopolitical context is challenging is the understatement of the year. Educators are dealing with unprecedented demands at this time including the varying needs of the student body recovering from the traumatic experience of the COVID-19 pandemic, being targeted by culture warriors for teaching students about racial justice or being inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community, and the urgent need for everyone to tend to their physical, emotional, and mental health needs.
Honoring Our History, Looking Towards the Future
A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER Dear friends of TransformEd, I’m writing to share that this is my 10th and final year at TransformEd. When I began this journey, our work was just an idea, a side project incubated by another organization. Over the last decade, TransformEd has grown and evolved into an organization that has partnered with schools and systems serving over 1,000,000 students across more than 26 states. I’m proud of the work we have done in partnership with school and system leaders to make systems-level changes that foster the development of the whole child. We do this work because we believe it is crucial to take action in dismantling systemic barriers to realize a future in which all young people become thriving adults.

We believe that the education system must change.
“The US education system is one of many structures in our nation that was designed in a way that upholds systemic racism and perpetuates the cycle of racial injustice. We believe that the system must change”
