Using the Linked Learning approach, we build partnerships that make learning real, relevant, and experiential, transforming education to empower all young people and build stronger communities.

Student building structure

In every partnership, ConnectED partners with leaders to co-design long-term strategies for systemic change that clearly define desired student outcomes, design and implement high quality college and career pathways, and engage in continuous improvement. We catalyze connections, helping community leaders create surprising alliances that will support and sustain change.

We help make the invisible visible—lifting up local context, mapping strengths rather than deficits, and leveraging local assets. We aim to empower all learners, by making learning real and elevating student experiences. Throughout, we join with and care for others, creating powerful communities of practice and committing to honest reflection and sharing.

In short, we champion change, pursue what works, deepen relationships, and learn continuously.
