We're an out-of-school time program that uses entrepreneurship as a means to closing the opportunity gap for young people. If you want to teach, but a traditional classroom role is not for you, then check us out!
The Possible Project (TPP) is a multi-year, youth entrepreneurship program offering students exciting project-based experiences:
*the creation and running of student-directed, passion-based ventures
*hands-on experiences within TPP Social Enterprises
*work-based learning opportunities through internships and fellowships
*learning about and use of high-technology maker equipment, such as laser cutters, 3-D printers and clothing printers/presses
*personalized college and/or career advising
TPP is in its second decade of operations, having served nearly 1000 students in the greater Boston area. The organization employs 30+ professionals with plans to grow significantly in Boston over the next 4 years, as well as other cities beyond 2025. TPP offers a strong professional development ethos, a fast-paced entrepreneurial culture, innovative curriculum & pedagogy, and a commitment to excellence and student impact. Importantly, TPP is highly committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in everything we do. Currently in an expansion mode, TPP plans to open a 35,000 sq ft Boston Innovation Center serving 1000 students a year, launching in fall 2021.
TPP is currently developing its next generation Program design and curriculum which includes a focus on project-based and competency-based learning, culturally responsive teaching practices, whole-child approaches, and a commitment to developing not only skills and mindsets, but also students’ social-emotional learning and identity. TPPs vision is a world where young people shape their own futures, and we seek educator-advisors to actualize this, contributing to an evolving model of transformative learning.
