COVID-19 Message: Though we are all impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that there has been a greater impact on students and school as they face an uncertain future. As part of our efforts to maintain a community connection and provide an avenue for charity to students, the TALScout program is entirely virtual. As school’s work to adopt distance learning, we have adopted ‘distance internships’ allowing students to connect with the TAL team, charitable causes, and other students from a safe distance. To learn more about our program fill out the application form.
