Wayfinder Overview

Project Wayfinder is innovating education with a year-long purpose learning curriculum called the Wayfinder Toolkit. Designed at Stanford University’s d.school, our curriculum uses a wayfinding metaphor to equip our next generation with tools to unleash purpose in their lives and meaningfully contribute to the world they are a part of. Our toolkit is currently being taught by 200 teachers to more than 4000 students at 64 schools and colleges across the US and in 11 countries.

Dashielle has spent much of the last 10 years as a wilderness and adolescent educator. As the Director of Back to Earth Outdoors, she guided 70+ multi-day wilderness programs with youth and adults. Dash currently runs her own company, Illumin, where she leads adults and youth on transformational wilderness journeys. One school she has had the opportunity to guide annual outdoor trips for is Sonoma Academy, an independent school in Sonoma, CA. The through-line of this work has been working with hundreds of teenagers, asking them the question: "What does it mean to live a good life? A life of meaning, purpose, and connection to ourselves, others, and the natural world."

Dashielle was one of the first to join the Wayfinder team back at its inception at the Stanford d.school where she worked on early curriculum development and led many of its first trainings. She has since led numerous trainings on behalf of Project Wayfinder as one of our senior guides. Dashielle graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Peace and Conflict studies and is a trained NOLS wilderness educator.
