We love having people come and share their favorite hobbies or courses they normally teach as a job. We have had so many interesting people share during July Camp. Beat Making Lab shared how to make a song using a electronic platform, Art Center College of Design has come to teach photography and soldering, other Cambridge teachers, parents, and students have come to teach arts and crafts, bookmaking, math and science kits.

A great deal of exchanges. A couple teachers come up to the Greater Boston Area and observe in classrooms as well as share information about Haiti so that there is a cultural exchange. Teachers from some of the schools (Especially Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, and teachers from the Cambridge Public Schools) come visit Matènwa to gain cultural exposure so that they can better serve their students in the US. They also give teacher trainings on topics that the Haitian teachers have asked them to talk about.
