We partner to design opportunities to learn.

We're an energetic education research and partnership center addressing one of the major challenges facing California and San Diego: getting our diverse community of young people prepared for, admitted to, and succeeding in college and careers.

CREATE houses an innovative team of researchers, youth mentors, and professional development experts working with the region’s teachers.

We envision the San Diego region as a network of K-20 partners working together to support young people’s growth.
