The Trailhead Mission
Integrating entertainment media, gaming principles, and cutting edge technology, Trailhead exists to build capacity for and usher in a new learning paradigm to educate and empower this next generation's voice.

The Trailhead  Vision
Trailhead Enterprises is an LLC owned by Jill Brownlee Wolf and operated, at present, in California.  

Trailhead’s vision is to shift and support a learning paradigm through the development of  21st century learning tools using 1) story and game for the modeling of socially responsible uses of knowledge 2) advanced Information Communication Technology  (ICT) principles for the assessment and the individualization per learner 3) current technology for the accessibility and creative opportunity 4) subject area integration for the real-life connections of concepts, people, problems, and choices and 5) the virtual world and game space to allow learners the chance to learn through their own choices and mistakes, to share their learning with others, to generate content to teach others, and to communicate with mentors, collaborators, and the world.

We believe the foundation of quality learning must revise the 3R’s of learning to

Relevance -
From contexts to technology, the topics and tools of learning experiences must be current for learning to be relevant.

Rigor -
Simple tasks are insulting to a learner whereas complex problem-solving for the survival of nations stimulates a commitment to tackle the difficult. Rigor respects a learner, requires creativity and engagement, and demands they use knowledge as a tool for a bigger problem; making the task and journey worth the investment while also making the learner feel necessary, capable, and important.

Relationship -
Everyone and everything is connected. Therefore it is imperative that learning experiences show the relationship between ideas, people, and choices.

The Trailhead Values - 
Trailhead’s values begin with relevance. In a world where one is looking for purpose and identity we will stand out as an authentic and genuine place to find your voice.

Trailhead Enterprises was born in the heart of Jill Brownlee Wolf as she observed teenagers cross her path that lacked purpose. They held privilege they didn’t understand, were confused by seemingly irrelevant instruction, and fascinated by games that challenged their minds more than any classroom assignment. Jill wanted to use stories and current technology to help children discover who they could become, how what they are learning could be a relevant tool for their journey, and why action to help those in need could make them matter.

Trailhead believes educators need relevant 21st century tools (like curricula), implementation support, professional development through the paradigm shift, and celebration of progress and success. They need to see that their present best could be better with better tools. They need to see that their paradigm is outdated and that shifting is hard, but necessary, and with support, it is reasonably painless. And they need to feel that this effort is appreciated.

Trailhead is committed to being relevant to a world in need of authenticity and genuine grace.
