Over the course of his career as an inventor and health care executive, Robert Kasirer has remained firmly dedicated to community service and charitable giving. Robert Kasirer supports the efforts of many different nonprofit organizations in his community and beyond, including the Harvard-Westlake School.
A prominent private school located in Southern California, the Harvard-Westlake School offers a number of special programs that transcend the formal curriculum. In particular, the Mountain School program allows students to spend a semester in a vastly different learning environment. Participants in the Mountain School program spend a semester living and working on an organic farm in rural Vermont. Thanks to a small school size and location in the mountains of Vermont, the Mountain School requires students to work together to manage the farm. The Mountain School fosters a communal spirit and encourages all participants to find their voice and play active roles in the daily functioning of the farm.
