We are happy to announce the beginning of a collaboration with Project Rousseau based in New York, USA.
Project Rousseau shares many objectives with GTT about empowering young people to be the best they can and we are in awe of the work that founder Andrew Heinrich and his team have done so far! Watch this space for further updates!
Here is some information and personal experiences from the Four Pillars of student support Project Rousseau provides (taken from the Project Rousseau website)
We establish safe, stable and supportive one-to-one relationships between high school and university students. The continuity and consistency of mentoring is key to our students and almost always is a significant change from the other sources of support in their lives.
From standardized test prep to core subject support to homework help, we offer a range of academic programs, after school, on the weekends, and in the summer. We are thrilled to offer fascinating academic electives on top of this, ranging from French to a Model United Nations team.
We encourage our students to use their skills and talents to give back regularly to the community in a meaningful way. We believe they should develop a habit of caring for others and develop strong bonds with those they serve.
We expose our students to new environments, people and cultures. We believe all new experiences are good experiences, as they encourage our students to dream bigger for their futures.
