A Program of Schools for Children


What is SEED?

SEED partners with communities, organizations, and institutions in bringing people together to learn through self reflection, build relationships through structured dialogue, and create change through systemic analysis.

SEED leaders are community organizers, educators, and social service providers. They can be found facilitating conversations in classrooms, local libraries, multi-site organizations, online, and beyond with the common goal of working toward social justice and a commitment to wholeness, wellness, and just relationship with others.

SEED at Lesley Ellis

SEED’s mission is in close alignment with the educational philosophy at Lesley Ellis. Although the SEED program is for the adults in our community it reflects the experience that Lesley Ellis students have each day in their classrooms. Collaboration, reflection, and inquiry are foundational to the Lesley Ellis approach to education.

SEED has a transformational impact on the lives of SEED leaders, SEED seminar participants, and their communities. Those who participate in SEED report they are better able to listen to all voices, including their own. They are also able to embrace the challenges and joys of the many kinds of diversity found in their own lives and in the lives of others with more confidence and competence.
