Mission Statement

To support a better world with better citizens by fostering learning competence, emotional intelligence, and networked intelligence. KeelWorks especially wishes to bring greater participation to the economically disadvantaged across the globe. We measure success by progress in competency (not grades). We build nurture hope for dreams by building competence.


We are a charitable non-profit virtual foundation. Founded in 2009, we've worked with over 300 graduate students and past students helping them bridge the gap from education to gainful employment while helping KeelWorks build a structure for people needing change. Our goal is to be the equalizer, bringing those on the outside looking in to the inside. Our goal is to end poverty across the world, one life change at a time. Our special approach involves grouping people for mutual support, teaching core competencies, and supporting goals with objective progress metrics and team accountability, We hope to build a structure for change that can be replicated hundreds and thousands of times. We don't give participants fish, but hope to teach them to fish for themselves.

I was initially very excited to work with this organization as a virtual e-learning design intern. However, on the day I was to Google Meet with the executive director, Thomas, he did not show up at our scheduled time (which I was not upset about because I realize things can come up). Understanding this, I waited about 5 minutes for entry into the meeting and then e-mailed him to make sure he was still available to meet. I waited another 5 minutes for either an e-mail response or entry into the Google Meet (a total wait time of 10 minutes) before I left the Google Meet. When I checked my e-mail later, I received messages from Thomas in which he called me "unmotivated" (without us having a single conversation) and, in so many words, he had a "you need us more than we need you" attitude. Not once did he apologize for being late to our meeting. I found these actions to be extremely unprofessional and, unfortunately, he left a bad taste in my mouth about interning here.

I joined the KeelWorks internship program and became an Instructional Designer. I really appreciate the support from the peers, mentors, and the organization. I hope more people could join us to support the people in need.
