Our mission is to advocate on behalf of underserved families throughout Eastern Washington by raising awareness through research, media, and leadership developement.
We raise awareness, provide solutions, and cultivate leadership for people of color and vulnerable communities who are not receiving health equity and social justice. We center lived experiences as we build community from the ground up. We align programs and initiatives discovered through research and community feedback.
In 2020 our organization became heavy involved in youth prevention, intervention and growth mindset for kids in the local community. We wanted to know how movement and culture could heal a child's and build resillence.
The Learning Project created youth programs focusing on a growth mindset through step teams, leadership camps, and collaborative partnerships to increase students positive experience score.
in 2015 we established the first social justice training in project based learning for early childhood educators in WA, State.
In response to the growing need for relevant training we built training and workshops to build a framework of hope to help educators better understand how the social determinates of health impact the communities we serve.
Many communities experience health inequities because of their race, culture, identity or where they live.
We identify health equity strategies through in-person and virtual seminars, art exhibits and ceremonies that gather underserved communities. Our approach is unconventional to help build engagement through policy, community and the arts.
