About Us

Digital Storyteller

The Organization

Imagine if K-12 education was designed for all students to develop lives of meaning and purpose. In 2015 Wayfinder was founded at the Stanford d.school to answer this call. Our goal is to double our impact each year for the coming years. Our vision is to become the preeminent SEL curriculum company in the world - leading the global movement of purpose, meaning, and belonging-based education worldwide. 

What We Value

You will be joining a team of incredibly motivated and dedicated staff members that are committed to living the values of our organization. We have a close culture where team members get to know one another and work collaboratively across teams. We also feel and act like a purpose-driven organization. To the best of our abilities, each person’s role aligns with their own sense of purpose, which feeds into the organization’s larger sense of purpose.

We also value access, equity, diversity, and belonging. This is represented primarily in three ways: our product, our staff, and our schools.

Product: We have intentionally developed our curriculum to be able to cross national, racial, and socio-economic boundaries. During the process of curriculum development, we have had over 30 educators work on and develop the curriculum from a variety of backgrounds.

Team: Our team is composed of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and life experience. We intentionally recruit, hire, and work with people from diverse identities + experiences.

School Partners: We intentionally target a wide array of educational partners, from traditional to non-traditional, that work with a range of students from different socioeconomic groups: we have taught our curriculum in low income schools in the Bronx, independent schools in Silicon Valley, and after-school programs in San Antonio.
