Former Apprentices

Jeremy Rourke, 2004
Public school teacher, Mentor of At-Risk Youth, San Francisco

“I found out a lot about myself at Zen Center….On the farm time slows down….You see the lifecycle of plants; it’s going at its own speed. Giving up my time expectations of life helps with patience in working with the kids.”

Jeremy works with elementary school children teaching computer science and chess and mentors high school students who are at risk.
