We envision a world where everyone sees themselves as a learner and educator working together to develop their community’s potential.
Several years ago, we looked around our home community in Tucson, Arizona, and began wondering what it would look like if every community member saw themselves as an educator or mentor. Each of us has unique stories, skills, passions and experiences. When we share these gifts with each other, we develop a sense of belonging and identity as a community and define a vision for our shared future.
We asked ourselves… What would happen if we could create pathways for people to share their passions and experiences with each other every day? What kind of learning and relationships might emerge by bringing people together across geographic, socioeconomic and institutional boundaries? If learning transcended school boundaries, what would this make possible for students, educators and communities?
These questions were the seeds that grew CommunityShare.
