Teach To Learn is an effort to have ugrads teach in community colleges and highschools on a voluntary basis. The incubator for this is the ACM club but we want to extend it to the whole campus eventually. The idea is that we want to help the community by sharing knowledge and know how.
The effort can have tremendous impact on the life of students that have less opportunities: lack of wealth, lack of support from school, poor schooling, work and study and the list goes on. So the goal is to do something good for someone else for a change.
The indirect benefits for the teachers are that students will feel proud, useful and experience in teaching, and become more responsible in their approach to learning and life in general.
