Teem has experienced tremendous growth since the pandemic, indicating the importance of its programs and the willingness of schools to participate in a program that opens up the world to their students. TEEEM Vice President, Taylor DeMaio, states, “TEEEM had very humble beginnings. Just 18 months ago at our first Leadership Symposium, we had students from 10 schools from 3 counties. This year, we are thrilled to be hosting students from 30 high schools across 7 counties. It is here where students develop tremendous ideas that make a lasting impact all over the world. This year, there will be 180 attendees, including students, teachers, administrators, and global leaders."
Students in NJ help students around the world through various programs.
At this unique educational event, nearly 100 student leaders from New Jersey high schools will work directly with esteemed global leaders and non-profit CEOs to learn about the needs of impoverished communities around the world. At the symposium, students collaborate with peers from other schools to develop solutions to real issues being faced by families and community members across five continents. This year’s keynote speaker is Coach Jim Stroker – a New Jersey educator and coach of over 30 years, inductee to the New Jersey Coaches Hall of Fame, and a recipient of the prestigious Distinguished Alumni Award at Ridgewood High School (coachstroker.com).

Jarret Schecter, TEEEM founder, states, "TEEEM was founded on the value of giving today's high school students and tomorrow's changemakers an opportunity to care about others and see how so little resources go so far for billions of people living in an increasingly interconnected world."
TEEEM students and 10 global partners support hundreds of thousands of people by treating patients, feeding children, educating students, empowering women, building infrastructure, and providing hope across five continents. Schools participating in TEEEM programs are currently in New Jersey but TEEEM is expanding into other states. For more information on TEEEM visit: https://www.teeem.org/.
