Treehouse Institute is a nonprofit organization focused on social innovation. We are always trying new things and helping others to as well. We think creative confidence and new perspectives are what we need today and will make tomorrow awesome.
Treehouse was founded after looking into questions raised at TEDxDirigo – “what happens next?” “how do we do more of this?” “what is ‘this?'”
Treehouse continues to support the production of TEDxDirigo and helped start TEDxYouth@CEHS, TEDxYouth@Biddeford, and TEDxSMCC.
We help launch new initiatives that connect people, places, and ideas. These, in turn, foster more resilient and prosperous communities.
In addition to supporting TEDxDirigo, Treehouse is nurturing the new Portland Global Shapers Hub, and Represent: Networking for Professionals of Color.
Everything we do is rooted in our mission:
We make connections between people, places, and ideas. In turn, these connections foster the growth of resilient and prosperous communities. Being from Maine we understand the importance of both being resilient – hardy and able to bounce back – as well as prosperous – an abundance of financial, ecological, and social health.
