The initial Teach For America application includes two short answer questions, and your responses are a valuable opportunity to bring to life your accomplishments and desire for impact. We've put together a quick, 15-minute On-Demand application workshop to support you in responding to these questions and submitting the strongest application possible ahead of our application deadline. You'll have the opportunity to explore related resources, view sample resumes, hear our alumni share why they chose to join TFA, and submit questions (which we will answer via email within 24-48 hours). Register now and revisit the content at any time!
Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning, meaning our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are! What we do with our physical body (what we eat, how much we exercise, even our posture) can impact our mental state, positively or negatively. This results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies. Join us as we evaluate the relationship between mind and body and discuss the ways we can build a stronger connection-- allowing us to be healthier, stronger advocates for our communities, each other, and ourselves.
Mindful self-compassion combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. Individuals who are more self-compassionate tend to have greater happiness, life satisfaction and motivation, and overall better physical and mental health. Join Marisha Dixon, Wellness Leader and TFA alum, as she talks through how to become more self-compassionate, use self-compassion practices, and harness empathy for growth and impact.
Clearing away clutter can help you make healthier choices, improve your relationships, and cultivate a more balanced life. Join Kenika Williams, professional home organizer and TFA alum, as she talks through the power of spending 30 minutes a day for a week to declutter practically any space that you inhabit. She'll give you a blueprint on the best way to navigate decluttering your space, resources that will personalize this work for you, and and set the foundation for focus, balance, and impact.
Join us as disability and inclusion activist Imani Barbarin discusses what we can do to dismantle our deeply embedded ableist tendencies to create more inclusive communities.
