Parents are stressed & frustrated. Teachers are overwhelmed. Community partners have been sidelined. Students feel helpless.

This 3-week interactive event is a chance for all of us to unite and map a new way forward.

  • Parents
  • Teachers
  • Out-of-school Time Educators
  • Mentors and Skills Coaches

Together as Learning Pathmakers, we will focus on the power of individuals to create better learning pathways instead of concentrating on educational systems. 

The Expedition is the first opportunity to become part of Learning Pathmakers. By the end, you will have:

  • A tailored and adaptable roadmap to turbocharge learning, educating, and supporting learning success
  • Lifetime access to a diverse set of advanced tools and curated resources to strengthen learning now and into the future
