A grant of $300,000 over three years to continue to build a stronger teaching corps in Birmingham and the Black Belt. TFA serves as a pipeline to bring exceptional young people to our state and keep them here doing great work for kids, helping to ensure we have a strong talent pipeline for teaching and other education-related positions in high-needs communities across our state. With almost 150 teachers currently in schools across Alabama and nearly 400 teachers brought to Alabama since 2010, TFA teachers bring incredible energy and dedication to their classrooms. TFA teachers support a broad array of out-of-school activities as well, including college access and support programs and special learning opportunities like the Higher Academics Summer School which prepares high school students from Alabama’s Black Belt for college.
