A Promising Night

TFA Welcome Event This month we launched our Teach For America (TFA) Mentoring Program, by hosting a celebration welcoming our TFA teachers and introducing them to their mentors. The TFA Mentoring Program is designed to provide the framework for relationship-building between CPN donors and TFA teachers through exchanges of professional experiences, networking opportunities, socializing, and the creation of opportunities for information-sharing. These efforts will support TFA’s mission of leadership and bring increased enthusiasm to Charleston Promise Neighborhood schools.

Passion and spirit filled the room with committed teachers and lifelong friends, who share the same focus of closing the achievement gap in the four CPN schools. TFA teachers and CPN donors gathered and shared stories and experiences on a personal level. This will be the first of many gatherings between mentors and mentees where they will grow personally and professionally!
