PROJECT TEAM TEACH EDUCATE AMERICA FOR THE NEXT MILLENIUM
November 26, 2012

TFA/LA has the secret to getting the disadvantaged kids on track to a course that could help get them on to productive lives. The Corpsmembers turn the kids on by giving them a goal the first day of class The goal might be to go to college and every day it is reinforced by stories and in the meantime the Corpsmembers have a personal goal to advance the kids at least a grade and a half durig the school year. After a grueling recruiting, selection and training the corpsmembers are carefully monitored by senior members of the regional office. In many cases the corpsmembers are helped by the tennured teachers in the school. Collaboration and inspiration are the keys.

The Center for the Partially Sighted
August 5, 2012

As founding Chairman of the Board and Chairman for 25 years I am proud of the growing importance of The Center over the years. Sam Genensky,the founder and former CEO, and LaDonna Ringering the present CEO, have done a fabulous job in growing the number of clients over the years by stressing the results the Center provided to people who thought they were gonig blind and learned there are ways to curb the loss of vision so independent living can be continued.
