We envision the day when every young person has access to high-quality, out-of-school learning experiences that give them the skills, confidence, and mindset to advocate for their own success. 

To achieve its Vision, DiscoverU helps youth successfully apply and gain admission to and complete high-quality, out-of-school learning experiences and advocates for the inclusion of experiential learning in the policies and practices of educational systems.



We believe that all youth, regardless of background, can benefit from high-quality, out-of-school learning 
experiences, and that all youth deserve the chance to expand their worldview and develop the capabilities and attitudes necessary for success.



We believe that DiscoverU best achieves its outcomes through meaningful, personal relationships with students 
and FLO providers. At DiscoverU, we believe that high-quality communications technologies can enhance these relationships.



We believe that staying focused on our Mission, committing to continuous quality improvement based on 
meaningful data, and engaging and supporting expert talent are key to organizational success.



We believe that forging authentic, transparent, and mutually-beneficial partnerships is the most effective way to 
achieve our Vision and Mission.

"Without DiscoverU I probably would be sitting at home every summer doing
nothing but snacking all day, playing video games, and doing nothing productive. Before DiscoverU I didn’t know what I really wanted to do with my career, but they really helped narrow it down for me. I jumbled from major to major, all different from each other. Art,
engineering, biomedical science; I even thought about private investigation. But now, I know what I really want. I want to be a leader."
