Are We Insane?

“Insanity is doing the same thing over but over again expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

We are facing a huge loss of youth’s potential driven by curriculums and learning systems that don’t equip students with the mindset and tools to prepare them for future markets, nor are customized to cater to the specific talents of each student and unlock their full potential. Most importantly, these systems are not being able to foster a sense of purpose that provides meaning and drive beyond school and work.

There is a massive gap between young people’s expectations and the reality they face. That’s why we help students find the new sane. We encourage a non-linear path to discover what gets them going, and how it fits the future they are entering into..
