Out of the 400+ past participants, 50 are returning alumni on other programs. We have worked with 49 different schools, 10 different organizations and 6 different universities, national centers of testing or ministries of education. Many of our teachers have kept in touch for years, exchanging ideas and doing collaborative projects in their classrooms.
