To optimally achieve our mission of Crafting Engaging Learning Environments, we designed our business model with two distinct project functions.
One, we run a for-profit educational consulting service. We have the opportunity to partner with companies and schools to craft unique learning spaces.

Or, we have also created a path to accomplish our mission through philanthropy. We want to give back by specifically helping teachers who have a passion to create and personally work in a flexible learning space. We partner with companies, organizations and citizens to provide donated new furniture, products and/or services to transform their school learning spaces.

As you know, teachers and schools have limited funds. We have the opportunity and ability to make a difference helping educators push their learning environments into a new era of design and function. Our goal is to improve student achievement in the United States by focusing on the often minimal importance paid to the physical classroom by leading educators and district administration in this country. A student's psychological and physiological well being is greatly shaped by their environment. So, while in school, in a place where students' spend typically six plus hours a day five days a week, we want that space to be inviting, motivating and yes, a cozy place for learning.
