TEEEM is partnered with 9 non-profits and have sites on 5 continents. Each non-profit we work with focuses on helping underserved communities in different ways. Needs typically include: healthcare, education, agriculture, environment, infrastructure, economics, disaster relief, community and youth development.
All of our sites are designated as "pods" among our schools so that multiple schools can support the same site. Students collaborate directly with the founders and site leaders from their respective pods to learn about the current and future needs of those communities. Students then develop creative, innovative ways in which they can help address those needs from their classrooms.
