Go the extra mile for a sustainable intern program

The extra mile

2019 TCGIS Give to the Max Campaign for a Sustainable Intern Program

TCGIS goes the extra mile every day for our kids. Not only do they deliver a world-class education, but they do it in German. This means that, in addition to having traditional school expenses, TCGIS shoulders the extra costs of running remarkable immersion programs.

One such program is the intern program. In 2019, 12 interns traveled an accumulative 52,243 miles to help support our classroom teachers and serve as native speaking mentors for our children.

let's Cover the distance together

It costs TCGIS $100,000 to cover those 52,000 miles. How far can we go together?
Every $20 covers 10 miles.
