Cool Learning Experience is an amazingly broad alliance of unlikely partners who identify with some aspect of our mission and core values. We span both private and public sectors. The strength of our committed support network is built upon common ground and a shared sense of ownership. Many partners develop a very deep personal involvement with Cool Learning Experience.
Cool Learning Experience recognizes the importance of role modeling by our partners in education. We seek to prepare children to one day step up and take responsibility for uniquely contributing to the betterment of their world. Vital to this formation process is staff, volunteers, and supporters who positively model our core values. Our goal is for students to imitate these role models; first within the "smaller picture" of Cool Learning Experience and later in the "larger picture" beyond.
