When you see a Great teacher you are seeing a Work of Art.

To teach is to demonstrate... It's time to turn our knowledge into wisdom and spend it to educate our children.

Participant Pictures documentary Waiting for Superman by the director of An Inconvenient Truth arrives in the Fall showcasing the demise of our education system in this country...

The statistics everywhere we look are disturbing. Don't go to sleep. Find out how you can help... go to Participant's social action page here.

Watch the trailer for the doc...

There was a study the US Government did a long time ago about the single most impactful influence on a child K-12... The answer was surprising to everyone... One Adult, meeting with the child once a week, SHOWING an interest in them. The results of this study gave birth to the successful Big Brother/Big Sister programs.

You know what you need to do. Get involved. If you see a child you can help, if you are drawn to an organization that can use your support... Do not hesitate. Take action.
