YES Prep is hands-down the best place to go if you want to make an impact on education. Founded by a visionary and sustained by a dedicated staff, I don't think I could have asked for a better place to "learn the ropes" coming out of college and into the real world.
At YES Prep, I learned both how to teach very effectively and how to manage myself (and later, others) to most effectively use time and resources in pursuit of long-term goals.
