October 26, 2021

Get the inside scoop from a TFA recruiter on salary & benefits, training & support, the certification process, and choosing your work location. The first 20 minutes will address the most common questions we receive:

1. What and where will I teach?
2. What will my salary and finances look like?
3. How does teacher certification work?
4. How will I be trained and supported?

We will end with 10 additional minutes of Q&A with a recruiter, at which point you can get your specific questions answered. We will also be sending follow-up resources ahead of our December 3rd deadline. We hope to see you there!

Increasingly, social justice movements have been pushed into the online sphere and social media has been leveraged as a force for good. What does this new movement of online advocacy and changemaking look like? How do you build an authentic brand as an advocate for equity and move beyond performative social media? Join us for an interactive workshop on building your brand for justice and equity to explore social media as a tool for equity mobilization. 

"I don't deserve to be here." "I'll be found out!" Imposter Phenomenon is a common occurrence that can keep us from feeling a sense of belonging and accomplishment, especially in spaces where societally reinforced expectations of who belongs or who succeeds are pervasive. What does recognizing your own strengths look like in a world that’s set up to not always clearly recognize them? How do you identify when your imposter voice takes over? In this interactive workshop, we'll dive into how to navigate imposter phenomenon and learn to identify triggers, as well as understand the roots of imposter phenomenon in inequity.

Consumer culture is a culprit of inequities in our lives, and especially lives of marginalized communities. In this event, we'll examine the intersection of capitalism, race, and the fashion industry, how sustainability and consumerism try (but often fail) to coexist, and how we can examine and unlearn our consumer behavior to ensure we further equity and decrease our contributions to the environmental crisis.

Building financial literacy has great potential to empower communities. Systemic inequity in our nation is often a catalyst for lack of access to financial literacy and resources that would allow the building of personal and generational wealth, and widening the wealth gap. Join us for this workshop as we learn more about how to empower communities through financial literacy and explore financial tips for your own life and career.

As the heat of the planet rises, so too does the pressure on rising generations to find solutions to heal our environment. Such pressure gives rise to a new climate-induced crisis: our own mental health. How is climate change altering the way we relate to stress and trauma, our decisions about our future, and the increased disparities experienced by marginalized communities? Join us as we sit at the intersection of climate change, social justice, and mental health and discuss how we can all contribute to the harmony of our world and our own inner peace.
