Envision Experience – Why Work For Us?


The Power of Potential

Since 1985, Envision has empowered more than 800,000 extraordinary students to become their best selves with programs that enable them to discover their passion, explore a career, and positively impact their world. Our programs are designed to be fun, engaging and inspirational. Taught by subject matter experts, our hands-on experiences are delivered in remarkable cities and at some of the world’s top universities like Stanford, Columbia, and Harvard.

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 congressmen, saw the monuments, and experienced democracy in action. The excursion was deemed a huge success, but the teacher and the staffer soon realized that this was no ordinary field trip; the students not only discovered a new deeper relationship with the world around them, but also began to realize the power of their potential

The opportunity to learn through experience had a profound effect on those high school students in 1985, just as it has on Envision students today.

Thirty years and more than 800,000 exceptional students later, Envision’s mission remains focused on giving high-aspiring students in elementary school through college the unique opportunity to turn their career and life aspirations into reality. Our programs are innovative, safe, fun, empowering, and provide transformational experiences that enable students to:

  • Discover their passion
  • Explore a career
  • Make a difference
  • Realize their dreams

We believe in the Power of Potential—the idea that all students have the power to live their dreams, make an impact, and change the world.  While technological advances are reshaping career paths every day, they are also creating opportunities never imagined.

Studies show that hands-on educational experiences foster critical skills that positively impact students’ college acceptance and a more successful and confident transition into life after college.

Grounded firmly in research and best practices, every Envision program is deliberately designed to be immersive and fun. Envision students live their dreams: conducting mock trials, diagnosing patients, building robots, investigating crime scenes, creating video games, producing and directing films, planning international development, or preventing international conflict.

Our students enjoy real- world experiences in the safety net of an Envision program environment. They discover their own ability to solve complex problems while collaborating with peers. They get a unique opportunity to practice communication and creative skills that will prove to be imperatives in today’s increasingly complex world.

Our education philosophy is shaped by five key guiding principles:

  • Fun: Experiential learning is fun and we capitalize on a hands-on approach to learning that fosters enthusiasm and self-discovery.
  • Student-centered: Our programs are designed to maximize the experience and aspirations of each individual student.
  • Participatory: Our inquiry-based learning environments incorporate innovation and multi-sensory engagement throughout every program.
  • Social: Our programs encourage collaboration and foster meaningful connections among students and teachers alike.
  • Results-driven: Our hands-on methodology enables students to learn and transfer skills, in new contexts, for lifelong success.
