Teza Technologies Employees Partner with Kids from After-School All-Stars of New York for a Cooking Challenge

On Thursday, April 7th, Teza Technologies employees spent their afternoon volunteering with students from the After-School All-Stars of New York Chapter. They participated in a special cooking competition creating healthy meals and conducted a blind taste test to determine the best dish. The winner was a crepe filled with Nutella, blueberries and strawberries.

This is one of the many programs that Teza Technologies and After-School All-Stars (ASAS) have partnered on. For the past three years, the firm has funded After-School All-Stars CampUs Chicago, a college-preparation and STEM summer training program. Through CampUs, students have had the opportunity to visit Microsoft, Teza Technologies and the McCormick Foundation and experience STEM through hands-on projects, such as learning computer coding, building their own websites and developing apps and business plans.

Recognizing the desire for ASAS employees to expand their network and learn more tactical approaches to after-school success, Teza Technologies sponsored a TEDx-style retreat in Washington, D.C. in 2014. Twenty of the organization’s program directors were able to attend and learn about operations, stakeholder engagement, opportunities for collaboration and more.

In 2015, CEO and founder of Teza, Misha Malyshev, donated $300,000 to ASAS to support its STEM programs. Misha has also served as an ASAS National Board Member since 2014.

  1. I know several families whose children have benefited from college prep programs such as this one. It’s great to see companies like Teza taking strides to give back to the local community

  2. It’s nice that kids from this program not only have opportunities to do fun activities like this, but are also introduced to STEM and business at such a young age. They might not have considered college without prep programs like this one, and it’s great to know that some students will look at college like a hopeful future instead of just a unreachable dream!!
