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 an approach that is rooted in community-based leadership. We apply our national experience to guide cities through the process of innovation, collaboration, and 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 community to realize broad social goals.

TandemEd’s clients are a wide range of organizations that desire to contribute to development of communities to meet their own goals: 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 communities 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.



TandemEd educates and propels communities of color to lead their own social change efforts in tandem with institutions willing to align with community-based efforts.
