TAI is devoted to:
Specifically, we help people develop 21st century skills. These are the vital skills that we rarely learn in traditional education, but are essential to success in today’s rapidly changing world.
What makes us unique:
For the past three years, the University of Pennsylvania has worked with TAI to train social entrepreneurs with the tools of transformative leadership. We now have trained over 130 social innovators.
I've witnessed how the TAI curriculum can be applicable for any early stage social entrepreneur. Regardless of the industry, venture stage, or interests of the entrepreneurs, the TAI curriculum helps people clarify their purpose, set a game plan in motion and build a growth mindset. Participants in our program walked away from the training with a greater willingness to dare greatly and take risks, to think more critically and creatively, to ask for help, and to spot new opportunities and alliances. TAI helps change makers reach their full potential and create great social impact."
When Echoing Green first considered the creation of an activity guide that would equip faculty and staff at colleges, universities and nonprofits to instill a sense of purpose in emerging professionals, we went straight to TAI.
Though it has evolved with time, TAI's contributions remain the backbone of our Work on Purpose curriculum, which is now being used by approximately 800 faculty and staff at nearly 200 colleges, universities, nonprofits and, most recently, corporations.”

The principles of Transformative Action have been foundational to Educate!'s curriculum in Uganda which currently reaches 25,000 youth across the country. Having been both a student and facilitator of Transformative Action, I can say with complete certainty that it has been one of the great privileges of my life to be introduced to Scott and the principles of Transformative Action."

The Transformative Action Institute impacted my life in an awesomely positive way. As a result of the lessons I learned through the TAI, I was empowered to make a bold commitment to start Sword & Plough and incorporate social impact in every step of our business model. Scott and his team challenged me to think about innovation, and even luck, in news ways. This exciting process has helped me in my life as a social entrepreneur every single day. Because of the Transformative Action Institute, I am a more resilient, bold and innovative leader and entrepreneur."
