TandemEd envisions vibrant and thriving communities of color with a unified narrative about their rich history, present opportunity, and sustainability into the future.



TandemEd offers capacity-building services that focus on race and equity using a collective impact approach that is rooted in community leadership. We apply our national experience to guide neighborhoods through the process of collaboration, innovation, intervention, and ultimately, the promotion of community as a social foundation of immeasurable value. TandemEd utilizes asset-based community development and inter-organization collaboration to build on the existing strengths of each neighborhood to realize broad social goals.

TandemEd’s clients are the community themselves, with investments and partnership from a wide range of organizations that desire to contribute to development of communities and meet their own goals. The latter includes philanthropic institutions, nonprofits, local government, and education agencies who seek to collaborate with community members and grass roots organizations to define and implement their goals with fidelity. We additionally focus on refining the narrative and developing the necessary resources and capacity for our clients and their allies to  drive lasting change. Reach out to us today to find ways that we can partner with you in the collective goal to promote community-based leadership.



We provide capacity-building services that aid in efforts to unite communities of color in leading the development of their youth and the strengthening of their communities.
