What We Do
They Don’t Teach You This In School was founded with the aim of helping motivated young people get where they want to be faster, by learning from the knowledge and experience of today’s adult generation.
Previously, if you wanted to learn from someone you admire, you could read a book about them or try to meet with them. But the Internet has allowed something much more effective, with the combination of social networks, video websites, and blogging services.
We have a continuously expanding archive of videos of adults in all professions. The videos are intended to give you a snapshot of an important lesson or experience that these people have had, that has helped them get to where they are now. We want you to be able to learn about a lot of these lessons quickly, and then be able to apply them to your own life to help you get ahead.
All our videos are of people answering the question “What is one thing that they didn’t teach you in school, but that you wish you had known when you were younger?”
