Verdant Learning is a Brooklyn-based organization that partners with schools to strengthen parent engagement and to increase and diversify enrollment.
Guided by a participatory approach, we help parents, staff, and students engage more inclusively to build trust and support long-term student and school growth. We develop programs to support each school's learning priorities, improve communication and collaboration between staff and families, and help restore what is possible for students.
Verdant Learning draws upon lessons learned through traditional school turnaround approaches combined with enabling meaningful change in low- and high-tech environments across government, private and non-profit sectors.
