This episode of the Getting Smart Podcast is a part of our New Pathways campaign. In partnership with ASA, the Gates Foundation, Stand Together and the Walton Foundation, the New Pathways campaign will question education’s status quo and propose new methods of giving students a chance to experience success in what’s next.
On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Tom Vander Ark is joined by Michael Smith, CEO of AmeriCorps, the federal service agency connecting individuals and organizations to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges. Michael also served as executive director of the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance and as director of Youth Opportunity Programs at the Obama Foundation.
