our culture code
We believe the best way to make change is to live it.
That's why the same core values guide our vision, our approach, and our culture.
Through the BWE curriculum, we help youth around the world develop the capacity for
empathy, global understanding, creativity, and collaboration.
Our team strives to live these same values every day.
(That doesn't mean we're anywhere close to perfect. At all.)
We also believe learning need never slow down. We value people who question, explore, and seek growth at every opportunity. You join our team not to know, but to learn. Not to build your personal resume, but to create collective impact. To surround yourselves with people striving to be even more hungry and even more humble as we grow.
Here's what our core values look like in action:
Seeking to understand before being understood
