About Us

We are a global movement of educators and change agents who believe that a flourishing, sustainable world begins with our students and schools.

Mission Focused. Educator Driven. Non Profit.

We support inspired teachers, innovative administrators, and educators of all kinds to maximize their ability to affect positive impact and sustainable change in students, schools and teams.

We inspire transformative learning practices that enhance reflective, critical and systems thinking perspectives with tools that are easy to integrate into any context or classroom and provide the foundation for emerging change agents.

We design experiences, classes and workshops to foster a community of systems thinkers who believe that a sustainable world is our opportunity and responsibility.

What We Do

We provide expert guidance to educators and administrators in the form of customized professional development, online courses and classes, in person facilitation and school wide sustainability implementation frameworks.

We teach sustainability habits of mind that incorporate the four Compass points and provide a holistic foundation for systemic thinking.

We embrace complexity and encourage action, using systems thinking tools to build better learners and empower change makers.

We meet you where you are at and support your learning journey with personalized instruction, supportive coaching, excellent resources and a committed educator community.

Why We Do It

Our planet and our people are in crisis.

We cannot solve the problems of today with the tools of yesterday. We must evolve our thinking and our practice to generate new outcomes.

The critical and transformational skills developed by the “Compass Toolkit” empower students to not only make a difference, but to do so in a way that values and honors the interconnectedness of our way of life and life on this planet. We believe that when students and their teachers learn to approach complex topics, discuss current events or design service projects using the Compass Toolkit, they learn skills for life that accompany them as they raise families, start businesses and continue contributing positively and thoughtfully to the world.

At a time when systemic issues in healthcare, racial justice and climate change are being increasingly and publicly discussed, Compass Education builds foundational skills critical in developing the change makers of this generation. The time is now!

Join the Movement!

We cannot create a better world if we wait for someone else to do it. Each of us has unique abilities, knowledge and skill sets to contribute and now is the time to own your agency and stand in your power. As educators of the next generation, we must see this moment as an opportunity and a responsibility. The good news is that you’re not alone.

Compass Education is on a mission to share our tools with 1 million educators by 2030. Imagine the number of students you see and influence everyday, add their families and friends that they see and influence—multiply that by the years that you will teach, now multiply that by 1 million! Your potential to impact our collective future is exponential! Our world and schools cannot wait, the future is now.
