Your Alumni Team

Our Mission

Support: We provide our alumni the support through programming, access, and information to further develop their leadership capacity and impact. We will focus our efforts on supporting alumni in roles that impact education while simultaneously finding ways to support non-ed based alumni seeing connections to our mission. Ultimately we will work to increase the number of education based alumni leaders we touch and support by 2020.

Connect: We will increase the access our alumni have to one another, key programs and tools, and leaders and change makers in our city. We will do this by strengthening the spirit of collective leadership and providing spaces and platforms for our alumni to more effectively and efficiently connect. Ultimately, we will increase the number of alumni who say they are connected to the TFA network by 2020.

Elevate: We will create pathways, tools, and programs that allow our alumni to advance their ability to obtain roles in the education space in Chicago. This will include both our current Chicago-Northwest Indiana alumni as well as the large population of alumni we welcome to the region each year. Ultimately, we will work to increase the number of education based leaders in seat by 2020.
