Challenge Team

The Sunnyvale Challenge Team is a community group that meets each month to discuss the challenges facing youth and families in our community. Leaders from private and public sectors, including educational, judicial, health care and faith-based organizations, look for creative and compassionate methods to bring positive influences into the lives of youth and to guide them away from the damaging influences of gangs and drugs.


Wednesday, May 25 from 7:00 - 8:30 a.m.

Guest Speaker:  Rushton Hurley, Executive Director of Next Vista for Learning

Rushton is an educator who believes this is a great time to teach. In his work, he has taught Japanese language, been principal of an online school, directed a professional development program, and succeeded as a social benefit entrepreneur. He loves creativity, collaborative innovation, and laughing at himself.

Rushton founded and is executive director of the educational nonprofit Next Vista for Learning, which houses a free library of over sixteen hundred short videos by and for teachers and students at http://NextVista.org. Additionally, he is the charter president of the Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley. His graduate research at Stanford University included using speech recognition technology with beginning students of Japanese in computer-based role-playing scenarios for developing language skills.

Rushton has trained teachers around the world, and regularly presents at national and international conferences. His fun and thoughtful talks center on the conditions for success; the connection between engaging learning and useful, affordable technology; as well as professional perspectives of teachers at all levels.


Our Challenge Team supports activities designed for youth at risk and families, along with other projects involving elementary, middle and high school aged youth from our local public and private schools in the city of Sunnyvale. The Challenge Team looks to The 40 Developmental Assets as a guide in our efforts. We believe that working together we can make a difference for our youth of today and for the health and productivity of our community.
