For me, education was the way out of poverty, and it’s the same for the students we serve in Think Together.
A student recently told me, ‘Thank God for Think Together… I hate going home and having nobody there waiting for me.’
Program Leaders work with an assigned group of students, student to staff ratio is contingent upon CDC guidelines. Program Leaders act as a positive adult role model, coach, and mentor. Program Leaders must have a genuine interest in the growth, development, and provision of a safe and nurturing environment for the students they teach. A Program Leader’s ability to establish authority and connections through leadership, communication, and most importantly patience, will be required in giving our students the stability and nurturing atmosphere they need to succeed. Ensuring that Think Together students reach their potential takes a tremendous amount of hard work, flexibility, and commitment.
