Touchstones is an education non-profit on a mission to develop critical thinkers and collaborative leaders for a more inclusive world.
The world is changing; teaching and learning should too. To be fully prepared – as citizens, workers, and students – for what lies ahead and to develop solutions to the complex problems we face, everyone must prioritize listening, learn to recognize that we all brings essential strengths and perspectives, and build communities where leadership is shared.
Touchstones develops discussion-based curricula, training, and programming to help learners of all ages and backgrounds practice and build these vital skills. We have nearly 40 years of experience refining our unique method and creating global programs that systemically transform debate into discussion and build active listening, analytical thinking, and respectful dialogue toward a more inclusive world.
