In the following video, Cane Bay Partners Co-Founder Kirk Chewning speaks with instructors from the Operation Inspire Afterschool Program on the important role that USVI educators play in shaping economic development.

Operation Inspire, the flagship program of our philanthropic arm Cane Bay Cares, is designed to help USVI students develop 21st century skills. Classes are student-centered, and instructors act as guides while students build skills through project-based learning.

The PBL teaching method requires a high level of engagement on the students’ part and strong preparation on the instructors’ part. Cane Bay Cares offers support and professional development training for the entire OI team.
