only 8% of students growing up in a low-income community will graduate
from college by the age of 24. Want to change that reality?
Join us on
the 2nd floor café of the Diana Center from 6:30pm to 8pm on Tuesday,
October 22nd. Hear from alumni and representatives from the Teach For
America, City Year, New York Teaching Fellows, Blue Engine, et al. This
event is open to all majors and years and will be a great opportunity to
learn more about these programs, compare them side-by-side, and network
with representatives. Refreshments will be served.
The last Teach For America application
deadline this semester is this Friday, Oct 25th. Last year, 35 Columbia
Lions joined the fight for educational equity. Of the 16 million
students growing up in poverty, only half will graduate from high
school. You can change this. All majors eligible. Watch this video (http://vimeo.com/46300150)
to learn more about TFA’s mission and impact.
