As the nation celebrated Vikram’s successful moon landing, our partners were equally thrilled about their time spent at iTeach Schools. The session was a power-packed 1.45 hours, during which partners interacted with nine College-to-Career students from the 2017-2022 batches. Partners worked in groups of 5-6, with each group speaking to a student about their life’s journey. From there, partners identified problem statements and proposed solutions to the iTeach team. This unique experience left a lasting impact on our partners and was truly an unforgettable session.
