We're collaborating with young people and parents,—and leaders in education, community-based organizations, and technology—
to co-create a better pathway to the future of learning.

"It's the ideal time for creativity to bloom in education. Combining the ideas and energy of students, families, educators and others in this revolutionary way will surely lead to the next generation of groundbreaking progress in American public education!"

Stacy Kane

Co-founder and Executive Director, Washington Leadership Academy Public Charter School (one of ten schools to win the XQ Super Schools Prize)


"We participated as a pilot partner with District of Learning. It was the only technology solution we used where our students could understand everything that was expected of them from beginning to end. It helped them own their learning."

Patricia Brantley

CEO, Friendship Public Charter Schools

Our Approach

The relationships we build, what we do together, and how we do it are just as important as the results.

We all must chart our own course. With more options for each type of learners, remote learning gets an upgrade.

Your learning is in your hands. Create your own path forward, and together we can create a different future for learning.

About Learning Pathmakers

Co-create a better pathway for learning

This short video shows our founding vision to turn Greater DC into a giant campus for learning.

Learning Pathmakers builds on the nonprofit District of Learning, part of the MacArthur Foundation’s Cities of Learning initiative, endorsed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. 

For the last five years, we've learned what it takes to connect, coordinate, and document learning that happens anytime and everywhere.

No one institution, on its own, can help our young people learn what they need. It takes everyone—learners, families, school and community-based educators, and community partners of all kinds—to come together to help young people claim ownership of their learning, secure the supports they need for success, and connect purpose-driven learning to life.

Since the pandemic began, we’ve been collaborating with educators and technology experts—to leapfrog to the next level and co-create Learning Pathmakers with you!
