Despite teachers' best efforts, many struggle to effectively manage their classrooms and ensure students learn. Programs often lack adequate instruction in these techniques. Since 2004, Passport to Success has centered on effective teaching. Today, in-person and blended packages use a training of trainers workshop and coaching model that draws on the strengths and experiences of our 200-plus PTS Master Trainers. From our partners in education, teachers repeatedly cite PTS as personally beneficial — beyond the results in the youth they aim to reach.
Before, I delivered lessons in an authoritarian style. Now, thanks to PTS, I've learned how to work better with youth and keep their interest.Deputy Director,

When preparing to lead PTS sessions, teachers from around the world report rethinking and deepening their own soft skills.
From West Africa to Central Asia to South America, they tell us how becoming a PTS trainer has helped them connect with their students, understand them as individuals, work better with colleagues and family, hold students' attention, and ensure better classroom results.
PTS has helped me measure how many of the skills I teach I personally put into practice. I realize how important it is for me to not only practice what I preach, but to also continually improve on those practices so that my students can see a connection between who I am and what I teach.Psychologist and counselor,
