2021 Teach For America National Summit

Walter E. Washington Convention Center

02/18/2021 - 02/21/2021

Teach For America's mission is to enlist our nation's most promising future leaders in the movement to eliminate educational inequality. We accomplish this by building a diverse, highly selective national corps of outstanding young professionals and recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools in our nation's lowest-income communities and become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity. The objectives of Teach For America’s 2021 National Summit include, but are not limited to the following: • Celebrate Teach For America’s first 30 years, our growth as an organization/movement and the achievement of our 2021 goals, and reflect upon the movement’s impact upon districts and communities • Cast vision for future growth opportunities and build momentum for our 2021 regional and national goals • Inspire greater alumni involvement in the movement and the organization • Advance alumni thinking on key issues in the education reform movement • Strengthen the overall alumni network by fostering alumni connections to each other, opportunities and resources on both a national AND regional level • Advance Teach For America as an enduring American institution through meeting objectives of our Development and Public Affairs teams, among many others
