Meet some people who REALLY care.
Who would have believed that a single good idea, a team of passionate people, and a whole lot of hard work could build an organization capable of making such an impact in our community?
At first, it was just the two of us: friends, colleagues, and educators with a vision for a new way of educating youth. Instead of zooming into the minutia of our students’ academic skills gaps, we felt compelled to zoom out, uncovering the deep, underlying issues that impact our students’ success in school.
In our first few years, we developed a collective of young female educators,
Girls Moving Forward.
However, it didn’t take long for our vision to extend to serving boys in a new way, and
Boys Moving Forward was born.
Today, all of us at Moving Forward Education work tirelessly to equip our youth–young women and men–with experiences and tools that not only help them achieve success in school, but also support their strength and resiliency in an imperfect world.
