Belonging Begins in Schools

Re-Imagining Migration aims to transform the educational ecosystem to ensure that
immigrant-origin youth, their peers, and the communities in which they inhabit flourish in a
global society increasingly shaped by migration and demographic diversification. By harnessing
the power of schools, museums, and other informal learning environments, we create learning
experiences that cultivate a sense of belonging and understanding while promoting life-long
dispositions that enable young people to thrive.

Our approach is based on the Re-Imagining Migration framework developed by Verónica Boix-Mansilla from Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The framework invites educators to reflect on foundational questions to ensure all young people are prepared to thrive in a world on the move.
