The Unfolded Why

I empower students to unfold their potential, equipping them with the skills and insights needed to be refolded into empowered leaders, fully capable of realizing their unique purpose. My approach is rooted in hands-on education, impactful partnerships, and transformative experiences, all working harmoniously to shape the leaders of tomorrow.


About Unfolded

Unfolded was born from a simple sheet of paper, initially marked by crinkles, creases, and cuts, as its Founder, Jerry Simmons, embarked on a journey to craft the world-record paper airplane, created by John Collins.

In the pursuit of creating this remarkable paper airplane, an intriguing insight emerged. Much like in leadership, our beginnings often mirror a compacted paper ball - encapsulating our ideas, values, and beliefs. However, as leaders evolve, they find themselves unfolding to uncover their unique essence. Similar to examining an uncrumpled sheet of paper, every wrinkle, fold, and cut becomes a testament to one's identity. This process culminates in a beautiful paper airplane, metaphorically representing a transformative leader who not only discovers their purpose but also creates a profound impact on others' lives. This narrative encapsulates the essence of Unfolded's inception.

"In order to be refolded into the leader you want to be, you must first be unfolded." This powerful realization made by Jerry Simmons, serves as the cornerstone of Unfolded's philosophy. It signifies that the journey towards becoming an impactful leader begins with unfolding and embracing one's unique qualities.

Subsequently, Jerry Simmons developed an enriching curriculum, complemented by immersive workshops, designed to nurture leadership skills among middle school and high school students. This dynamic approach fosters an environment where emerging leaders can thrive and flourish.
