Before Your Visit
The Project Teach experience starts in the classroom. We help teachers get their students to start thinking about the future, so they can see themselves as young professionals before they even see Harvard’s campus.
Through an art project, students reflect on their own identities and explore how different college and career paths can provide opportunities to grow their identities.
Using visual aids, students imagine five possible paths for their future and their careers. Each branch on the tree represents a different outcome and the steps they can take to pursue or avoid it.
What Will We Do On Campus?
Students take a field trip to Harvard's campus for a day of real-life experiences, activities, and hands-on learning. Project Teach now offers a virtual campus visit which includes interactive maps, instructional videos from Harvard faculty, college student Q&As, and more.
Have your students fill out their paperwork and choose their classes—don’t forget to let your Project Teach coordinator know about food allergies and accessibility needs. Check the weather the day before, and remind your students to dress appropriately. On the morning of the visit, hand out the color-coded nametags and stickers for students with photo permissions.
