Join us to for a conversation on the impact LGBTQ educators are having on students across the nation. Many of our LGBTQ youth in underserved communities are facing complex challenges that often lead to limited life opportunities. You can change this. As a Teach For America corps member, you will have the opportunity to provide your students a safe, inclusive, and brave learning environment and inspire them to celebrate their unique identities.
Join us to learn about the different career pathways our corps members have taken before joining Teach For America. Talk to alumni who have transitioned to long-term socially impactful careers from non-education fields.
As of 2015, Teach For America’s alumni base expanded to include over 47,000 professionals. Our alumni will share valuable insights into the corps experience and how the skills they developed while teaching made them prime candidates for the work they wanted to do after their commitment. Join us for an open Q&A where you get to ask our alumni anything you want to know.
This webinar, led by Justin Tandingan, Director of the Asian American & Pacific Islander Initiative, will talk about the different ways in which the Initiative has advocated for the AAPI community at TFA.

Learn more about the mission of Teach For America, the basics and logistics of our corps experience, and the application process. This webinar is only open to City Year corps members and alumni, and will discuss some of the specific benefits of applying to TFA from City Year (i.e. same-region placement) as well as application tips and Q&A. Corps members will also hear from City Year alumni who are currently teaching with Teach For America.
Although 25% of our nation’s students identify as Latino, just 2% of our nation’s teachers are Latino men.

More than half of workers in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) professions today are white males. Gaps in STEM opportunities don’t start in the workforce, but in the classroom. Join our panelists for a discussion on the opportunities in Pre-K-12 education, and what educational leadership can mean for groups traditionally underrepresented in the STEM narrative.
Finances are a big factor in any major career decision. Join us to talk through the financial costs and benefits of joining Teach For America, and hear from an alumnus as they share their story about their transition to the classroom.
