Difference Making

Our challenges and opportunities are shared and it’s never been easier, or more important to make a difference. From hundreds of school visits and thousands of conversations with students, parents, preachers, policy-makers and the like -- making a difference has emerged as the most important way for us to transform learning experiences for young people and build a better future for all. We look forward to continuing to share these experiences with you through our blog and an upcoming book.
