Success in work and life often starts with success in school. However, too many students struggle to learn and graduate. In more than 50 countries, PTS training has enabled young men and women to recognize their own potential, find hope and motivation, and start planning for the future. We’ve seen how this new drive and sense of purpose translates into results at school. For some, it means not dropping out, thanks to a renewed sense of self-worth or clearer career goals. For them and others, it means getting better grades and being more engaged in the classroom.

My dad used to hit me. Nothing I did was ever good enough for him. Even I thought I was good for nothing! [Once I started PTS,] even the teachers noticed that I had changed. My marks improved, and for the first time I finished the grade on-time and without taking any extra classes.PTS graduate, Brazil
