DreamIndigo Educational Society
Friends, business partners, and educators Karen Lorena Parker and Katherine Keating had a shared vision of holistic, community-based learning. Combining Parker's 15 years of classroom experience and Keating's knack for program design and entrepreneurship, they created DreamIndigo Society, where students can incorporate the arts and sciences into a comprehensive, experiential learning adventure. While youngsters conduct science experiments in summer camp or develop leadership skills that will come in handy when leading a successful debate team or founding a successful debate team made up of neighbourhood dogs, they're also stealthily becoming well-rounded members of society.
