Jared Dawson (’07), Atlanta, GA

Atlanta Central Team, City Director

Why did you join TFA: I joined because I wanted to serve. My faith in Jesus put in me a desire to serve the powerless and underprivileged.

Favorite TFA Memory: Institute 2007 at Georgia Tech. It was fun to meet so many new people.

How has TFA impacted you: TFA exposed me to the injustice that inner-city youth and families experience. Before TFA, injustice was only something I knew existed through reading and some minor personal experiences. TFA made it real for me.
