We want our impact to be wide and deep. This means our playbook needs to be user-friendly. To this end we’ve created toolkits that house the nuts and bolts of the components of our model. We’ve only just completed our third year and we iterate constantly, so the toolkits are works in progress.

Some of them overlap with each other. Some include tools others outside of our organization have built. We think this is the future: expertise is always spread out around the world, and there’s no need to reinvent the wheel if someone else has already created the wheel for you. Sometimes your value add is in bringing disparate things together.

Unless you’re building a school from scratch, it won’t be feasible to implement them all at once. We’ve tried, as much as possible, to make each toolkit discrete, so you can identify your greatest need and start from there.

We encourage you to take, adapt, and share them freely for non-commercial purposes as applicable under a creative commons license. We also ask that, if possible, you give us some sort of shout out (ideally, via a link to this website and/or sending more people our way). This helps us measure our impact and value add, which, in turn, can help us get the resources to do more. Thank you. 

My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
