Harold Sharlin CEO, ReSET

Dr. Harold Sharlin founded the ReSET volunteer program in the Washington D.C. area in 1988. A large percentage of the K-6 students the program serves are children from low income households who attend inner-city schools. By introducing elementary schoolchildren to unique and engaging experiences with science and math, the ReSET program provides students with learning opportunities they do not receive in their regular classwork. The hope is that their experiences working with ReSET volunteers will encourage them to think more positively about science and math, to select them as electives when they reach high school, and to consider a future career in a math or science-related field.
