Building a Network of Educators for Civic Wellbeing. One Community at a Time.

We are a collaborative that is committed to working better and more successfully together to prepare young people for the future, ensuring wellbeing for themselves, society and the planet. We already have a track record of doing work that matters.  

Participating members connect with their peers to share good ideas and receive recognition for their efforts in local, national and global settings.

We are made up of organisations and individuals who believe in the power of the arts and citizenship education to develop young people as changemakers.  Starting in Kansas City, we want to build Collaborative Communities across the nation and find more innovative ways to achieve our shared goals.
