THE STORY:

 

CampInteractive is a Bronx-based non-profit organization that teaches its students technical skills like digital design, information technology, and web-site building, and also emphasizes the development of softer skills like communication, leadership, and responsibility through outdoor expeditions, camping trips, and extended hikes. 

 

As public schools in the New York area see their budgets shrink, students are less and less exposed to the technical and soft skills that CampInteractive works to improve. Meanwhile, educational research continues to show the importance of so-called “non-cognitive skills” to success in later life (see: last week’s This American Life). CampInteractive is a very special program that fills a widening gap in our public education system. I believe this institution has the ability to create a lasting positive impact on the students it teaches and the communities it serves.

 

And on a more personal note, I’m thrilled for the impending physical challenge of the New York Marathon. I grew up in Manhattan watching the Marathon from the sidelines – as an asthmatic, it never occurred to me that I’d be able to participate. But now, at age 26, I have the ability and the opportunity to run 26 miles, and to benefit the local community while I do it.
