ATT not only provides professional development for its teachers, but also to the Orthodox community at large. For over two decades, ATT has been providing parenting workshops. When an important issue arises, ATT tries to educate its community members so they can make an educated and informed decision. The 2007-2008 Caught in the Web: Internet Safety Program which over 700 people attended clearly illustrates this. ATT also offers courses in technology for interested parents. These courses provide hands-on practice in the Microsoft Office Suite as well as Internet Resources for education.
