Creativity, community, learning, and resilience are key ingredients to rebuilding after every challenge. Big Thought is here to help our learners, education partners, and communities find our way back to growth and development after this storm. During this crisis we have innovated - re-designing our curriculum to provide programming thousands of learners online. We have also designed and delivered professional learning to help other organizations make that transition. We are helping to make sure that ALL learners have access to high quality learning programs. We know these are unprecedented times. If you have the ability to give back today, we hope you will support Dallas area youth through #NTxGivingTuesdayNow. https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/big-thought
