FuelEd aspires to be an organization where people feel understood and valued for who they are. A place where people are reminded of their inherent worth and incredible potential through the power of acceptance. A place where people have the freedom to be themselves and experience limitless growth.
In 2017, FuelEd transitioned from a hierarchical structure to a flat or “self-managed” organization whereby power is distributed to all Partners of the organization. This innovative structure allows for autonomy and flexibility to both individual and collectively pursue our mission.
We believe in wholeness.
We believe that human potential is squandered when people are unable to be their true selves in the workplace.
We believe in growing people.
We believe people grow best in relationships, and so we grow ourselves and others by creating space for empathic, genuine, and unconditionally accepting relationships.
We believe in evolutionary purpose.
We believe FuelEd and its individual team members have their own purpose and sense of direction. We listen and understand what we are drawn to become, and where the organization naturally wants to go.
We believe in mission-driven work.
We believe in working as a team with conviction, energy and care in order to honor our mission of developing emotionally-intelligent educators that create relationship-driven schools.
We believe in the distribution of power and work.
We believe in the power to consent and object, value freedom and equality, and encourage collaborative self-governance to create strong systems that are resilient, self-organized, transformative and coherently structured.
We believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We believe in designing for equity as a means to heal from historical trauma and transform systems of oppression.
