ABOUT PowerMyLearning

PowerMyLearning is a nonprofit that advances educational equity and accelerates student success. Our programs promote culturally relevant teaching practices, foster social-emotional learning, and help students reach rigorous learning standards. We offer school- and district-level packages that include professional development for teachers and capacity-building workshops for families. We also offer an award-winning innovation, Family Playlists. What sets us apart from other organizations is our focus on activating the power of collaboration between students, teachers, and families. Now more than ever, our collective efforts to accelerate learning recovery must address the needs of the whole child and include families so we can reverse the systematic denial of educational opportunity based on race, class, language, and learning differences.
