TODASTW nonprofit Executive Director Carolyn McKecuen summarizes the program’s purpose in her 2015 address, “By exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day not only shows them the value of their education, but also helps them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment key to achieving success.”
The biggest difference you can make for a child is to connect their natural interests with a future purpose. It gives their learning context. The most impactful way to create this context is one on one with another person, parent, or mentor. Just read 26 years of testimonials from past alumni who now are working professionals on how the TODASTW day experience has impacted them deeply.
With so many ways to make a difference in the world, it’s best to look at what makes the biggest impact for lasting change.
