Helping those who help others

We help nonprofits and other social enterprises achieve their missions by targeting performance gaps impacting the organization. Matched with nonprofits in service-learning projects, instructional design students develop solutions that are customized to the organization’s learning and performance improvement needs.

We are currently in a three month pilot service-learning project that launched on Saturday, February 15th. This will be the only project we run until early this fall.  Please see the collaborative design space for more information about the pilot project, and contact us to stay informed about our upcoming projects!

Our motivation

With over 2.3 million nonprofit organizations in the US, there is enormous opportunity for the instructional design community to offer performance improvement expertise to help social enterprises achieve their missions. A parallel opportunity exists to offer real-world experience to instructional design students.

Our two-part mission
