The moment is now
Matterlab exists to reimagine entire systems around equity in education, because incremental progress isn’t enough when the mission is creating better outcomes for all.

Resources that give voice to what matters
By Briana Mitchell, AF Camp Director, and Makela Elvy, an environmental educator and camp enthusiast – together, the creators of S’more Melanin, a digital destination for resources, historical context, and connectivity for BIPOC in the camp world.
Changing the world is more than a mantra—it’s possible.
By Rea Foster, Executive Director, Teach For America Dallas-Fort Worth | At Teach For America Dallas Fort-Worth, we know that potential is equally distributed among all students. Opportunity, however, is not.
Summer camp isn’t just a place for students to go when school is out, it’s an opportunity to enrich and foster a child’s sense of adventure, imagination, and curiosity. This is why Camp EDMO is offering an opportunity for BIPOC-identifying kids to attend one week of camp in-person for FREE.
Know any high school juniors or seniors who are motivated, curious, and interested in exploring their purpose in life as they look ahead to post-secondary options like college and career?
“Sounds like a great place to work! I wonder why the agency is named Matterlab?” That was my initial thought after my first conversation about the possibility of joining Matterlab. Let’s take it back a little further.

IGNITING IMPACT ACROSS AMERICA

CEO + Founder
“This is my life’s work – building tools and community around greater equity impact for children and families.”
“I’m a Consultant at Matterlab, working directly with partners on a daily basis to increase their equity impact. Matterlab’s mission and values speak to who I am at my core, and when I was hired, I could tell the team was as excited about me as I am about them. We’ve got a lot of work to do – together.”
“When I design graphics for our partners, I feel like I’m designing for my own community, because I see myself in these kids’ shoes. They deserve the best from their schools – from all of us.”
