Center for Educational Excellence

“Cree” in Spanish means you (formal) believe or she / he believes. In the imperative mood or command form, “cree” can also present the demand that one believe, as in “Do not despair, but believe!” It is also the Shoulder to Shoulder acronym for our education mission, Centro Regional para Excelencia en Educación or the Regional Center for Educational Excellence.

Shoulder to Shoulder is supporting education in our Frontera region through partnerships that increase access to world-class resources and improve education. One of our biggest partners, Learning Equality, released an open-source learning platform called Kolibri (Previously KA Lite). We are proud to take part in this global initiative and bring the best education to a region forgotten for many years.
