Interns are taught how to monitor the progression and success of their students through interactive assessments, tests and benchmarks.
As Interns progress in maturity and skill they have the opportunity to make contact with their community leaders to make a compelling presentation of the success of their academic assistance and give testimony of their grass root impact in the community.
By thus expanding their reputation and exposure in their community our Interns become influential leaders of the next generation by understanding through personal example the responsibilities that leadership requires. Areteem’s Interns success is measured not only by learning how to set goals and achieve them, but by teaching others how to do the same.
