The mission statement: The Extra Mile Academy (TEMA) strives to be the premiere nonprofit providing financial literacy and career exploration opportunities for the students we serve.
There are two goals: 1) financial literacy and 2) career exploration opportunities. High school students are recruited to become Ambassadors for TEMA. They attend training to prepare them for public speaking. The class they offer is called Pizza, Pop, and Pedagogy or P3 for short. Pedagogy \ pe-d-g-j is the art, science, or profession of teaching.
