We invited top Certified Teachers, Pedagogy Professionals, Educators, and Facilitators to help us design and implement one of the most avant-garde and comprehensive educational programs ever created.


We have called it Multidimensional Education or ME. Our goal is to facilitate non-linear, hands-on, and self-empowering education that develops new areas of expertise, wellness awareness, and business skills.

ME is a revolutionary vocational program available for anyone 12 years old and up. Every student (we call them Creators) brings along their best friend or family member (we call them Co-Creators), both go through the entire learning curve as they share precious time together by supporting each other in their individual learning processes.

We customize and adapt every ME program by learning in depth about every Creator's top interests, educational goals, and by following their highest excitement as a guidance system. We focus on 6 main Education Hubs: STEM, Art, Service, Admin, Social and Wellness. 


We take everyone from zero to making a profit or landing a desired job by focusing on nurturing specific areas of interest. Our Coaches continue to be available empowering any new business models for up to 1 year after graduation.

Every session is facilitated remotely and offers one-on-one coaching with every pair of Creators. Our sessions are scheduled and facilitated from the comfort of everyone's home, and based on their availability, we do them via Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime and similar platforms. Our partnership with Instituto Prekop also allows us to provide vital emotional and psychological support for our Creators and their Families.

ME is here to fill in the educational voids that exist in any educational programs, strengthening and empowering education paths. We are the equivalent of a powerful multivitamin supplement to all education programs. Any educational levels are welcome! Our Facilitators and Coaches are experts in the different areas our program covers.

This after-school program is led by Alfonso Corona and Jose Uribe Gaudry and made possible by our amazing Team of Facilitators. To learn more about them please visit Our Team page.
