Zeke Berzoff-Cohen ’08 today received a 2013 Social Innovation Award from Teach For America’s Social Entrepreneurship & Innovation Initiative for his work as a co-founder of a nonprofit program that prepares public school students to succeed in college as well as to become civic leaders. Called the Intersection, the Baltimore-based program offers leadership training to students who then design and spearhead civic engagement projects.

The innovation award, which comes with $20,000, is presented annually to corps members or alumni of Teach for America who have “bold ideas … that will transform the education landscape in the United States,” according to the Teach for America website. Berzoff-Cohen, who was chosen from a field of 87 applicants, was featured in an article in the Winter 2012 Quarterly, to read more about his program, click here.
