To expand and improve learning opportunities for all youth.
We act in partnership with leaders and teams who are reimagining education with youth, families, and communities to move toward a more just and equitable future.
Margulf grantees honor the strengths and opportunities in the communities they serve. They are committed to systemic change that enables agency and independence for youth and families.
Margulf grantees recognize all people have their own passions, talents, and essence. With respect for this individuality, grantees build authentic relationships that lead to belonging and wellness for youth.
Margulf grantees develop new ideas and apply existing ideas to new contexts to foster youth learning and growth. They disrupt the status quo with purpose and intentionality.
Margulf grantees learn from everything they do. They embrace failures and challenges as learning opportunities.
WE ACT WITH COURAGE
We know that we do not have all the answers. We listen, reflect, and learn from our own work and that of others, embracing risks and new ways of being as opportunities to expand our sense of what is possible.
WE CENTER PEOPLE
Relationships are the foundation of our work. We prioritize wellness, build trusting relationships, and honor lived experiences.
WE FOSTER BELONGING
We hear each other without judgment, bridging differences through dialogue and connection. We create
spaces that foster belonging, where all people feel cared for and accepted.
WE CHAMPION JUSTICE
We know that power and privilege shape our work. We do the work to understand our own identities and
biases in order to disrupt behaviors in ourselves and others that perpetuate inequities.
