Empathy

We need more empathy in the world. Our programs are designed to have participants reflect on power and positionality, and on our ability to do good in the world.

Social Action

We believe that making friends is great, but making friends and improving the world at the same time is even better. We build experiences that inspire more civic engagement and action.
