In 2020, we launched the Leadership Circle, a new board that serves as a pipeline for diverse executive board leaders for the education sector, just as Teach For America serves as a pipeline for the sector overall. Members get matched with mentors from our Advisory Board and build landscape knowledge and connections to nonprofit leaders through quarterly events. If you’re interested in learning more, reach out to Mirana Bass at Mirana.Bass@teachforamerica.org.
THE AUXILIARY BOARD is a group of young professionals dedicated to supporting Teach For America’s efforts to eliminate educational inequity in our region. They do this through fundraising, outreach, and direct engagement with corps members and alumni in schools and classrooms. The board is composed of 20 rising leaders in education, finance, law, medicine, and business. Half are Teach For America alumni. If you’re interested in learning more, reach out to Trinity Johnson at Trinity.Johnson@teachforamerica.org.
