We do our work in the real world, joining forces with local PreK-12 schools and youth organizations to provide innovative, community-based solutions that help prepare the whole child for success in school, work and life. Our interdisciplinary focus crosses traditional boundaries, leading to collaborative research, integrated practice and professional development.

3DL is dedicated to helping individuals acquire the skills and competencies they need to thrive in a fast-moving, interconnected world. We also serve as thought leaders to advance the exchange of ideas, accelerate the movement of research into practice, and influence policy nationally and internationally.
