When We Support Teachers, Schools Thrive

Empower teachers to unlock student performance through engaging and effective experiential learning outdoors.

Grow Teachers, Grow Students

Our multi-year Professional Learning Program provides our proven one-on-one job-embedded coaching to six teachers per school per year, empowering them to lead students in engaging, hands-on lessons in any subject outdoors.

Why Outside?

You don’t need fancy equipment to implement an experiential learning program at your school. Effectively trained teachers can use simple outdoor features to create powerful and authentic learning experiences for all students.  Experiential learning outdoors is:

—  Immersive and engaging for all types of learners
—  Cross-curricular, allowing students to apply existing knowledge
—  Real, relevant and meaningful problem-solving
—  More collaborative than screen time.


Out Teach works with corporate partners and foundations to engage their employees in a fun and satisfying day of community-service.

By partnering with the school community to design and build the outdoor classroom, and then spending years training the teachers to use the space for academics, Out Teach ensures that our learning gardens are well-used and well-maintained for years to come.

Building Dynamic Partnerships


Across districts, in schools, and outside in dynamic outdoor learning spaces, Out Teach delivers powerful, proven results. With strong corporate partnerships, the impact spreads far beyond the neighborhoods served by the schools.
