Teach, Lead, Make a Difference.

Seniors, if you haven’t finalized your plans for next year, I encourage you to consider a non-traditional, post-graduate opportunity with Teach For America. If you are even 1% interested in creating an option for yourself after graduation, take 5 minutes to register on the website to get connected to events, alums and more information. The application is non-binding, so starting one does not mean you’re locked into applying. Juniors, you can apply early as well for our March 4th and April 20th early junior deadlines. Remember, it’s all about giving yourself options!

A few facts about Teach For America:

Just Keep Pushing: 3 Quotes to Get You Over the Midterm Hump

by Brittany M. Williams, Career Consultant for Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, Social Sciences
