Impact participants gather for a service project in Tulsa

Seeking passionate changemakers who are eager to make an immediate impact. We invite college sophomores and juniors of all majors to apply to join our one-week spring break experience.

As an Impact participant, you’ll complete meaningful service projects, immerse yourself in a region’s rich history, and build relationships with college students from around the country. 

Impact is an all-expenses-paid experience. With your Impact team, you’ll travel to a region to engage in hands-on work that will positively affect students, families, and communities with whom TFA partners. 

Impact 2019 took place from March 10-15, 2019 in Tulsa, OK. The 2020 application will open late this fall.

“I think it’s easy in college to get caught up in that campus bubble where you’re just thinking about your own life and not really stepping outside of that to take notice of your greater community.”
