All of us - from social entrepreneurs to philanthropists, policy advocates, researchers, private sector leaders, and community partners - have a critical role and responsibility to push even harder to maintain the social problem solving momentum we have created together.

#TFA25 Roundup

Posted by Admin on Feb 16, 2016 2:24:49 PM


Last week Teach For America celebrated 25 years of dedication to education. The weekend brought together 15,000 friends, partners, and members of the TFA community to reflect on progress made and to discuss the work to be done.

We were honored to attend TFA’s 25th Anniversary Summit in Washington and to witness so many leaders working to move education in our country forward. In honor of such a successful weekend, here are some of the top tweets from the 25th anniversary Teach For America Summit:
