TOP provides North American educators of social studies and STEM subjects, as well as workforce decision makers, with classroom materials, workshops, virtual exchanges, and study tours. These bring North Americans and Germans together to enhance the global competence of students, to bridge the "skills gap" between education and workforce development, and to strengthen the grassroots bonds of the transatlantic partnership.
