Abundant Beginnings is a community education and empowerment initiative that is re-imagining how communities can grow learners who think critically, live responsibly, and create meaningful change. We center the needs of those who are currently marginalized from meaningful educational experiences, with emphases on students of color, gender expansive and queer students, and differently-abled learners. Our youth and family programs are infused with social justice praxis. Summer camps, curriculum development, community education, and school building initiatives are the focus of our work in the Bay Area. We strive to create individual, community, and environmental change by fostering intergenerational, land-based learning practices.
