The mission of the Workshop is to unleash the creative and intellectual potential of young people to solve the world’s toughest problems. We do this by putting real world problems at the center of the curriculum, and evaluating students’ work based on the progress they make in defining, exploring, and ultimately developing solutions to those problems. We create a culture that fosters creativity, risk-taking, and responsibility for self and others. And we help students understand that setbacks are a necessary part of doing challenging work, and that the most important thing is to learn from them and press on.

    I was able to be introduced to Todd Menadier over this past summer at a workshop. I’ve been teaching special education in Southern NJ for the past 22 years, presently at Eagle Academy in Egg Harbor Township. We are an alternative school for at risk youth where we serve 55 students in their academics and work place readiness. I was hoping to visit your school to assist in furthering the direction of ours.

    Thank You,
