Our Mission

OUR MISSION is to unlock the capacity of the Fremont community to support Learning in new and innovative ways.    

Our network is an open group of interconnected, creative, and innovative people and organizations in Fremont and  the greater Bay Area.  

Our goal is to to spark new ideas, share best practices, make it easier for neighbors and colleagues to help each other and leverage our collective resources most effectively.  No one organization (or district) can  single-handedly transform teaching and learning, so we bring them together.  

Come join us.
