THE TEACH FOR ALL GLOBAL CONFERENCE
October 20th - 23rd, 2019
HOW CAN WE PREPARE STUDENTS TO SHAPE A CHANGING WORLD?
Co-hosted by Teach For Armenia, the conference will gather more than 450 members of the Teach For All community, including staff, alumni, students, supporters and board members from over 50 countries. Together, we will explore ideas and practices for developing students as leaders who can navigate and shape our ever-changing world, and consider how to bring this global knowledge into our work with local communities.
Teach For Armenia implements its Leadership Development program, which is a two-year transformational journey in leadership.
We recruit the most committed and exceptional candidates from Armenia and the Diaspora. They are trained to become leaders and teachers and placed in underserved schools and communities as Teach For Armenia Teacher-Leaders. We invest heavily in supporting our leaders during their two-year commitment so that they succeed as teachers and mentors to their students and role models in their communities.
Upon successful completion of our initial Teacher Leadership Academy our leaders are then placed in communities based on their educational and professional experiences and according to the needs of our partner schools.
They live and work full-time as teachers in public schools throughout their two-year commitment and also lead Community Development Projects in their local areas, working with their neighbors to identify the needs of the community, create business opportunities, and boost the local infrastructure.
