LEAP Fellow

Pawel Mordel

After several years in marketing in Berlin, Pawel wanted to see more of the world and enrolled in the MBA program at Yale. It was there that he acquired the foundation for his further pursuits: running original concepts in the learning space.

In 2017 he founded After School Hustle, a non-profit that aims at giving teenagers the opportunity to learn skills for the digital economy – ranging from design and programming to spreadsheets and entrepreneurship. The model is based on recruiting inspirational workshop leaders who want to volunteer their time on a weekend to work with a small group of teenagers. The organization helps them put together their bespoke workshop, thus lifting their experience from the purely charitable to an exciting creative project for themselves.
