Expanding Educational Opportunity
Join us for a Teach For America Information Session
The success of our country starts in its classrooms. However, millions of students growing up in poverty lack the quality education that will allow them to succeed—just 8 percent graduate from college by age 24, compared with 80 percent of their more affluent peers. This inequity of opportunity limits the future of individual students, entire communities, and our nation as a whole.
Teach For America (TFA) is helping eliminate this injustice by finding, training, and supporting leaders committed to equality. Their journey begins in the classroom and lasts a lifetime. These individuals take on the biggest challenge of their lives and spend two years teaching and unlocking the potential of thousands of students in low-income communities. Through this experience they develop as leaders and build lasting relationships with students, fellow teachers, and community members. As alumni, they join a nationwide network fighting for change.
Please join us Thursday, October 3rd at 5:00 PM in RKC 103, the Laszlo Z. Bito ’60 Auditorium. We look forward to discussing the challenges facing public education today as well as the role college students can play in combating the opportunity gap for low-income students across the country. Don’t hesitate to reach out to campus recruitment representative Ali Rallis with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
