Teach for America Multicultural Event

    Location: Malcolm X Institute: 109 Horace Turner Classroom (1st Floor)
    Date: 01/18/19
    Time: 12:00PM - 1:00PM

    Description:

    In America today, the circumstances children are born into predict the opportunities they will have in life. Our education system was not designed to enable all children to realize their potential or achieve their dreams. Sixteen million children in the U.S. live below the poverty line. Twice as many children of color are born into poverty than are white children, and only 14% of children growing up in poverty will graduate from college within 8 years of graduating high school. While no single solution is enough to bring about an equitable and excellent education for all children, Teach For America has learned over three decades that dramatic progress is possible. Lasting change takes bold, grounded leaders working together, inside and outside of schools, fighting for the aspirations of children and their families. Join TFA recruiter Cara Vendeville for lunch to learn how Wabash men, and students of color in particular, can make a difference in lives of children as Corps Member Teachers. All majors and class years welcome to attend and learn more about TFA – a top employer of Wabash men many years running! RSVP Required in WabashWorks. Lunch Provided. Business Casual Dress.

    Ticket Information: free and open to the public
