Our mission is to give 'Outlier' teens access to interest driven personalised career pathways, the latest tools and a professional network that will prepare them for career success 10x better than the one size fits all model.

Our learners will become 'World builders'. Self determined, equipped with the skills to maintain society, and solve the complex challenges of our world over the next 100 years. To do that we'll bring together a new learning Infrastructure accessible to anyone aged 14+ who has a smartphone - The city learning ecosystem.

The Capacities Crisis

The education system of the last 100 years will not prepare kids for the complex modern economy of the next 100 years.

We're in a capacities crisis, a time when our capabilities (individually and societally) can’t meet the complex demands of the challenges we face.

But we believe there's a better way to think about how we prepare the next generation to take the lead

— a model that's personalised, experience based and societally beneficial. One which draws out the best in each learner to provide them with economic opportunity, the space to reflect on what kind of person they would like to be and how they want to contribute to their community.

In any city our technology is used in, learning practices and environments will:

1. Activate skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication, and collaboration so that learners are prepared for an increasingly technology-driven future. Learners are empowered to identify and solve problems that affect themselves and their communities; to fail, retry, and learn from mistakes; to express their creativity in authentic ways; and to both struggle and have fun.

2. Challenge learners to question, examine, and dissect social systems; to develop the confidence to address and deconstruct inequalities; and to construct a more just and equitable world.

3. Connect all the places learners live, work, and play, including schools, libraries, museums, parks, clubs, community centers, centers of faith, at home, and online.
Encourage learners to explore and play and support them to follow their curiosity using varied tools (including, but not limited to, technologies).

4. Derive from deep and caring relationships between learners and their families, peers, educators, and mentors.

5. Connect learners to their communities and, in an interconnected world, help learners develop cross-cultural understandings that unlock opportunities to thrive both within and beyond their own communities.

Given time to connect with their interests; with space to work deeply on what matters to them; within communities of support, young people can life a life full of meaning and make what was once unimaginable, possible.

We’re just here to activate something which was buried by the bureaucracy of the legacy system. That innate human desire to reach out, explore, and to connect. It’s through this connection of ideas, people, the latest technology and communities that will be the bedrock of the next generations learning to prepare them for any future they face.

Be part of the founding team creating the future of connected learning.
