The Columbus School in Medellin, Colombia Awarded in 2019 with the Tri-Association Community Service Award

The School received this year the Community Service Award for its leadership in the TOM Colombia project. TOM means Tikkun Olam Makers and comes from the Jewish term “Tikkun Olam,” which means “repair the world.” TOM is a global movement that brings together teams of developers, designers, engineers and students in “Makeathons” to create sustainable and affordable solutions for people with disabilities. By combining assistive technology innovations with service learning, The Columbus School is creating a valuable forum for students to use their creativity and experience to solve real-world challenges.
