my Path

a new path for the educational system

Problem
Many people have tried to tackle how to help students succeed in traditional subjects, but few have tackled one of the most pressing problems: What makes kids WANT to learn?

{brainstorm}

Solution
Motivate kids to learn through project-based mentorships.

my Path
The goal of myPath is to inspire and motivate kids to learn. Through mentorships with working professionals, kids learn how their education is relevant to future careers.

Education based on results: kids work on projects that they choose. Throughout the course of each project, they learn traditional educational subjects as well as life skills not taught in classes. Mix: myPath is a flexible learning structure which involves both “theory classes” with teachers and hands-on practice with professionals.

Project based

I want to...
ARTS: short-movie, Broadway play, gallery exhibition, music album, photography session, write a book SPORTS: marathon, gym training, be a coach, physical therapist, manage a sports team CARE: take care of a dolphin, start a farm, medicate for flu CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN: kart, tree-house, decorate my house, design an innovative chair, design a package for a new product, game ADMINISTRATION & LAW: marketing campaign, develop a new product, participate in a trial

✦ ✦

Project based

At MY PATH we offer real-life projects related to different careers and paths that the student may be interested in Modular: the student chooses which and how many projects he/she wants to participate in. Students are given the opportunity to have a direct impact on the course their education takes. Adaptive: every student progresses through myPath at their own pace, progressing to more challenging activities as quickly, or slowly, as they are ready.
