After years of reaching young people across the country through education and youth development programs, Tiger Woods challenged his foundation “to make bold choices, explore unchartered territory and reach millions of kids around the world.” Now in its 25th anniversary year, TGR Foundation has met his challenge and celebrates two million students reached.
Working toward its goal to reach millions of students through education, TGR Foundation recently had the opportunity to present at the 29th annual Central and Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA) conference in Warsaw, Poland. The theme, Making the World our Classroom: One Less Brick in the Wall, was a clarion call to participants hailing from 50 countries and 70 schools, to remove barriers and focus efforts on developing a more relevant and globally-centric approach to education.
Creating an equitable future requires attention to the signals around us every day. In a world brimming with global competition, rapid technological advancements and growing disparities in academic achievement across the nation, the signals appear in the news every day. October presented me with multiple opportunities to travel, share and learn about different approaches in teaching science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, transformation efforts and the future of working and learning. With each new destination it was clear that change in our education systems is necessary and through committed organizations, collective efforts and strategic partnerships it will happen.
