Remarkable organization whose mission is to inspire and mentor public school students to achieve excellence in math by connecting middle school Algebra students for remote tutoring and mentoring from top-notch, high tech engineers and other professionals that use math regularly. The tutoring/mentoring is done through a web-based, interactive whiteboard and an audio connection, allowing mentors and students the flexibility of connecting from separate locations after school. If you think this might interest you - consider volunteering. This is a fantastic volunteer opportunity for busy professionals - just one hour per week done from anywhere the volunteer has internet access. This growing organization is expanding in terms of the number of schools it partners with. Truly a cutting edge and game changing approach to education. The kids (and the volunteers) will benefit tons.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting with founder and president, and seeing the organization evolve.
