Teach For America is a network of leaders transforming the education landscape in Chicago and Northwest Indiana in order to ensure that one day all students have access to an excellent education. We recruit and develop promising young leaders to teach in low-income schools for at least two years, then support their impact throughout their career, both within and outside of the education system. On Thursday, May 10, we look forward to honoring the work of our members and the progress we have made as a region towards achieving educational equity.
The evening will kick-off at 6PM with a cocktail reception, followed by a 3 course dinner at 7PM. We look forward to welcoming our keynote speaker - Mr. Arne Duncan, Managing Partner, Emerson Collective and former U.S. Secretary of Education and CEO of Chicago Public Schools.
