Creating the schools our youth need and deserve

Coming April 28 & 29, 2022

For teachers, youth activists, parents, community members and school leaders who want to transform schools

We’re tired of our kids getting the short end of the stick.

It’s time to break down the silos of isolated innovation so we can build a critical mass and transform the educational model to something that’s relevant to the human children in our classrooms.

In the EdActive Summit, you’ll:

  • Learn of models that have us so fired up to replace the old assembly-line model
  • Gain tangible information so you can help drive the conversation in your area
  • Connect with other leaders and action-takers so you can take the first or next steps to impact change
  • Gain access to a variety of resources to support you as a Change Activator

And as a result? You’ll have the tools, team, and steps to help you become an educational activist.


Over 2 days, speakers and educational experts will teach you strategies you can use to shift the narrative of education today so you can make a change.

Maybe you’re...

  • Tired of watching your children or students fall between the cracks because they don’t fit the mold someone else has established
  • Frustrated by the endless standardized tests that only serve one purpose: to ensure the school gets the dollars it’s expecting
  • Wanting to eliminate test-centric, content-focused teaching models so we can focus on the whole child

Whatever it is for you, it’s time to throw out the old-school educational system and usher in one that is equitable, relevant, and student-driven.

You can help lead that change.
