Positive learning attitudes are critical to success later in life. From Grit to a Growth Mindset to a sense of belonging, these attitudes shape learners' behaviors young. We at Khan Academy have a new idea - a campaign based on our experience seeing turnaround education cases to reinforce these attitudes in children.

It blows my mind when I hear friends talk about how they were bored one evening and with Tindr spent it out on a date. Instant entertainment and excellent match making... what if that could happen for mentoring?

One of the biggest barriers for my recycling is when I have something I'm ready to dispose of, walk to the garbage area and hesitate to know whether it should go in the trash or recycling.

Nathan commented on San Francisco's Zero Waste program

I live in San Francisco and love this program. It really excites me to know that there's an easy way to compost that doesn't require me buying worms or using my back yard. It is one of my favorite parts of living in SF to be proud of the fact that in any home people can compost easily.


Nathan commented on Interview: The Importance of Having a Voice

Hi Jade & Jason - thanks for this great response. It is exciting even just to imagine what that would feel like. Thanks for chiming in.

Hey Nathan,

You stood out as a top community member during our Youth Employment Challenge last year and we wanted to see if you would be interested in sharing some of your work in the Ideas phase of our current Financial Empowerment challenge (

We loved your “You Can Learn Anything” idea and also “Wisdom Talk Series". It seems like they both could fit nicely into our Financial Empowerment Challenge, especially if you'd consider exploring how financial education might play a role in the solutions.

There are just two weeks left in the Ideas phase ( of this challenge and we would love to see these ideas posted – we think they could spark some great conversation and lead to some awesome prototyping.

Hope to see you there!
