What our fans are saying
"We love using Parachute teachers because they provide students with an opportunity to experience things they hadn’t ever talked about before. One Parachuter brought in a 3-D printer. Another had students do yoga and learn about mindfulness. During one Parachuters' recent classes, students learned that their neighborhood is a food desert — an urban area without many fresh food options. It was different from what they normally learn. The kids loved it."
