Teach to Work taps into America’s rich reservoir of professional experience and facilitates a bridge to share that know-how with high school, community college, and university students – one clear pathway for closing the skills gap.
"Project Based Mentoring™ is a unique approach to learning because it integrates different generations and culturally diverse people around something to ‘do.' The project is based on tackling realistic problems with real world application. Where the mentor has vast experience in the project dimensions and content, the student is the idea generator, the responsible party, and the driver of the activity and its execution." — Patty Alper

"You have made a difference in the lives of these kids, and most likely you have made a difference in the lives of their kids as well. They have grabbed hold of your light, because they feel your encouragement and kindness, and maybe because they had no other. Thank you for your important leadership in this role."
