Croire, Inc is a seasoned team of goal-oriented educators and strategists who identify non-traditional and culturally relevant ways to build sustainable relationships between families, schools, and the community. 

Inspirational & Motivational Speakers

Building trust bonds, living in dependence: lessons of teamwork, open your mind, and learn to enjoy life—these have always been among the themes that audiences respond to most—and they are the themes that motivate and inspire now, more than ever.



Our Mission

Our goal is to lead families, schools, and communities into a growing relationship with each other.

Our Vision

We strive to be the world’s leader in family engagement by developing programs that strengthen family, school, and community relationships.

Our Beliefs


We believe all families and students must be at the center of decision-making processes. 






We believe the African proverb that “it takes a village to raise a child.” When families, schools, and communities work together, students thrive. 


We believe that motivated low-income families and families of color will feel confident and self-assured that they can help their child reach their fullest potential. 




We believe that at all levels — local, state, and federal — family engagement programs, practices, and policies must consider the social, cultural, and economic aspects of all families when suggesting opportunities for partnerships. 

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
