I’ve been fortunate to work with some very intelligent, dedicated and fun collaborators at Teach for America and One Goal. Both organizations focus their energy on helping students, many of whom face obstacles outside of the classroom that affect their studies. Teach for America works with teens to graduate from high school. One Goal works with students through high school and college, making sure they earn their college degree.
Both organizations serve underprivileged schools, and provide assistance to deal with work, personal and familiar obligations that can interfere with their education.
