Preparing k-12 students for the global economy

I definitely feel that online mentorship can definitely play a role for businesses and employers to reach out to middle and high school students. Especially, since our youth is alot more technicaly dependent and savvy than previous generation. My focus for my organization is to spread that concept in the Northeast area.

Hi Latoya, thanks for joining. As you browse around you can see how I'm coaching interns and volunteers. My goal is that others use this space for the same purpose by involving interns and volunteers from their own communities and using the ideas to focus to build program quality and capacity locally. The collective impact of this happening in many places can help us all.
