Teza-Sponsored After-School All-Stars Directors’ Training Concludes
LOS ANGELES (February 3, 2014) — After-School All-Stars today announced the successful completion of its three-day Program Directors’ Training in Washington, D.C., which was sponsored by Chicago-based global quantitative trading firm Teza. This program benefitted 20 of After-School All-Stars’ Regional Program Directors from around the country who came together to share lessons learned, and create a common understanding of best practices for keeping children safe and helping them succeed in school and in life.
Jamie Brown, Teza’s Manager of Technical Infrastructure, attended to welcome the Program Directors and observe the program. Brown said: “What amazed me the most was the Directors’ level of professionalism and their commitment to ensuring that best practices were captured, via video-recording, for future use. I know from my own experience that capturing information in real-time is vital for program continuity and I am impressed that After-School All-Stars has the foresight to recognize this and plan accordingly.”
Teza CEO Misha Malyshev said, “We were glad we could support the Program Directors’ Retreat in our nation’s capital and that Jamie was able to participate and represent our firm.”
After-School All-Stars Executive Vice President, Aaron Dworkin, said, “The program exceeded our goals and the feedback from our Program Directors was overwhelmingly positive.”
