The Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT) started with an idea. What if:
- Every child could get excited about learning through collaborative “hands-on” activities?
- Every educator could obtain low-cost materials and the training to use them in “hands-on” projects?
- 21st Century learning skills developed through “hands-on” education could become pervasive and improve educational outcomes?
RAFT’s mission is to help educators transform the learning experience through “hands-on” education that inspires the joy and discovery of learning. We are doing this today with over 10,000 educators in the classroom, doing home-schooling, or working in after-school or community-based programs. RAFT’s products, services and low-cost teaching supplies enrich and improve the education of over 825,000 young people each year.
