Early admitted corps membersespecially corps members who identify as LGBTQ+are invited to attend the Brave Education Summits in the fall. At the summits, you’ll have the opportunity to learn and develop, not only individually but collectively, as leaders hoping to impact schools and systems. You’ll find opportunities for mentorship and connection with TFA alumni and corps members in regions you may serve. You’ll also discover a supportive community inclusive of internal and external partners who play a key role in advancing safer and braver classrooms for LGBTQ+ students.

“I don’t have any spaces that feel as comfortable, open, and queer-friendly as this at school and I appreciate everyone here a lot.”
