+ Go Teach!

  • Apprenticeships are semester-long hands-on learning projects led by volunteer experts, like you.
  • You help turn kids into young scientists, architects, lawyers, business owners, etc. – experiencing success with successful adults.
  • These apprenticeships transform lives, inspire careers and set students on a path of learning.
  • The final students’ showcase called the WOW! gives them the opportunity to share

+ Share Your Knowledge!

  • You have unique skills and experiences to bring to students within a span of ten weeks.
  • Choose a topic that you are interested in, from robotics to mock trial to video game design, by looking through the engaging lesson plans in our curriculum library.
