Mission Statement

Teachable Moments International’s (TMI) mission is to create domestic and international, cultural and academic experiences that challenge and support young adults in their journey of self-discovery.

Description

Teachable Moments International (TMI) offers domestic and international programs for young adults age 15-22.

Our domestic program, Science Moments that Rock, takes place one Saturday per month, every other month, October- April. During these sessions one scientific or mathematical concepts is demonstrated and presented. After a brief guided instruction period, participants apply the concept in a hands-on experiment. Laboratory work is followed by a presentaiton by a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineeirng and Math) professional who share what a real-life application of the concept studied looks like.

Our international program, The Tunyi Scholars Project runs April - August. This program culminates with participants traveling to Cameroon, West Africa for the month of July and teaching selected topics in STEM subjects to their peers. They are trained for this assignment in a Saturday School that meets every Saturday, April - June. These sessions include training in teaching techniques, cross culture and most importantly, personal growth and development.
