THE LOGIC IS SIMPLE:
Visionaria learning experiences in the classroom help students grow relevant skills, improve grades, and lead to greater success in life after high-school.
Visionaria programs focus on critical personal competencies and skills…
“I treat myself with respect and kindness.”
“I believe in myself.”
“I actively plan for my future.”
- RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS:
“I contribute positively to my relationships with others.”
- TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE:
“I know things that are professionally valuable.”
“Before, I never really thought much about how I treated myself. I always used to tell myself, ‘you can’t’ and ‘you’re so stupid because you messed up’. But not now. Now I know I should treat myself better. And I know that I can, and that when I fail, it’s just a chance to learn how to do something better the next time around.”

2018 Visionaria for Schools Impact
“Before I was invited to Visionarias, I used to have the attitude that, “I can’t, I can’t do it, I can’t achieve my goals.” I’ve come a long way from there. I changed the way I talked to myself, the way I am. I changed a lot. Now I can talk, I can say the things that I think.”
“Before, I never talked with anyone and I didn’t have many friends. I practically lived in my own world. But not anymore.”
Helping teachers meet learning goals…
“What I found most useful about the training? — New strategies, motivation, and a change of attitude”
“Visionaria helps me reach the goals that my students also want to reach.”
Youth-led Sustainable Development Initiatives
Benefiting 3,000+ members of their communities
“I learned a lot in the practical projects. You get a little something different from each thing we experience and you say to yourself, ‘this will serve me for life’ and you take it with you. For me, one of the most important things I took away was how to be more sociable.”
We are an ambitious team, designing Visionaria programs to scale.
