Driving Long-Term Outcomes

Our Programs


The Big Thought team and our partners are able to achieve success in our community through our social and emotional focus, experiential learning, community-centered partnerships, equity lens and future focus.

Big Thought’s unique approach comes alive in the following ways:

Direct to youth programs

We develop and deliver high quality curriculum and programs to serve alongside communities that have historically been marginalized. Big Thought designs the programs, trains the educators and works closely with our partners to engage students to help unlock their potential.

Learning Systems

We strategically connect partners and resources across the city to create learning systems that can effect change on a wider scale. When we work together, we’re better able to reach unprecedented numbers of youth in areas of our city.

Learning & Research Partners

Big Thought is honored to be part of a strong network of Learning Partners and to be leading efforts in Dallas to measure the impact of out of school time learning in partnership with SMU’s Center on Research and Evaluation.
