By | Awards, Knowledge is Power, Mixte Community, Mixte Presents, Professional Growth | No Comments

Growing up, I saw tutoring in many forms — from my parents to my teachers, even to the older kids in my after-school program. One of my very first days at Mixte, I participated in a brainstorm that everyone seemed extremely enthusiastic about.

In my tenure at Mixte, I have gotten lots of curious questions about how the model works and how it impacts the everyday the interaction with our clients.

I like the curiosity and, rather than tell you how the model works in theory, I want to take this opportunity to show how it works, and succeeds in making a big impact for our clients. Read More

Why So Serious? The Case for Partying

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Let’s face it, in the mix of variety of clients we are privileged to work with, Mixte works on some pretty heavy issues. Homelessness, pollution, fair housing and environmental degradation to name just a few. So, while it might seem strange, I am here to make the case that all these issues, often seen as challenging and complex enough to require nothing but stoic focus, are a very good reason to throw a party. And that is just what Mixte did.
