WHAT IS B-Unbound?

B-Unbound connects youth aged 14-24 (Navigators) with advisors (Co-Navigators) who are rooted in their communities within trusted organizations (Local Partners). Starting with interests, Navigators use B-Unbound to find Supportive Adults (age 25+) and peers (Navigator Community) who share their interests. B-Unbound is an expansion of Big Picture Learning’s proven practices using ImBlaze technology to reach more youth aged 14-24 in and outside of school.

As humans, we long for connection, exploration and doing what we love to do. We seek and are drawn to finding meaning in our lives and doing things that matter to ourselves and others. However, many of the current systems surrounding young people are more geared toward compliance, efficiency and regulation. 

Built on over 25-years of research, experience, and success, B-Unbound operates as an expansion of Big Picture Learning's extensive offerings supporting youth agency, interests, relationships and search for meaning. B-Unbound offers an opportunity to break down the walls which narrowly define human potential and instead create a truly open-source world in which the map of a young person's future is expanded through their interests, the work they put in to get better, and their imagination.
