A teacher and a staffer go to Washington...
In 1985, a Connecticut educator saw an opportunity to make the world her classroom. With the help of a congressional staff member, she arranged a trip for her students to visit the nation’s capital to attend the second Presidential Inauguration of Ronald Reagan.
The kids embraced Washington, DC—they met members of Congress, saw the monuments, and experienced democracy in action. The excursion was deemed a huge success; however, the teacher and the staffer soon realized that this was no ordinary field trip. The opportunity to learn through experience had a profound effect on these high school student. They not only discovered a new and deeper relationship with the world around them, but they also began to realize that they were capable of achieving so much more than they previously imagined. They realized the true power of their potential.
Thirty-plus years later, Envision has grown from a teacher with an idea to a company that provides 17 different career, leadership, and technology programs that take place in cities across the United States and the world.
