Vision

Our vision is of a humane democratic world in which civic life is run by effective and informed citizens.

Our mission is to redefine civic education and the day-to-day practice of civic life by creating once in a lifetime educational experiences that teach, empower and connect such citizens across borders.  We work in Latin America, Europe and the US.
