The Education Enrichment Committee partners with existing academic and recreation programs to provide courses focused around social justice, innovation, and current events. Our workshops are designed to supplement classroom learning and foster a strong sense of empathy and intercultural understanding.


  • We take a competency-based approach to curriculum, focusing on the skills we hope to nurture – from leadership and compassion to communication and problem solving – rather than imprinting factual information.

  • Our programs are largely activity-based, and include everything from innovating greener architecture to laying the blueprints for a local activist effort.

  • In addition to facility-specific work, we’re moving toward partnering with far-reaching institutions to distribute curriculum on a systemic level.

  • Our curriculum is intentionally low-resource, easy to implement and aims to be as accessible as possible.

    • We often collaborate directly with partners to adapt programs to best fit their unique learning goals.
