The 2021-2022 academic year marks the 10th anniversary of Teach For America South Carolina (TFASC). During this landmark year, TFASC will recognize the teachers, alumni, partners, and supporters who made our impact possible over the past 10 years. We will also ask critical questions on how to amplify our impact over the next 10 years – reaching more students and communities.

We are commemorating our “10 Years of Intentionality” with several anniversary campaign moments. Our culminating campaign moments include two events – Dodgeball Tournament and Spelling Bee – as a fundraiser to support our work toward ending educational inequity in South Carolina. Check out our additional campaign moments below.

TFASC's 10-Year Anniversary Celebration

We are excited to host TFASC’s 10-Year Anniversary Celebration from May 2-6, 2022 during Teacher Appreciation Week. The celebration will feature a virtual celebration fundraiser and show two “live” events – Dodgeball Tournament and Spelling Bee – that reflect the nostalgia of the classic school experience.

Throughout our weeklong celebration, we will also look to the past and future by recognizing the teachers and supporters who made our impact possible over the past decade and releasing a white paper about the future of education.

DiscussED Forum

DiscussED is a series of bold and innovative conversations to discuss the evolution of South Carolina’s education system. In March 2022, the theme of our inaugural DiscussED forum, “The Future of Education: 2040 and Beyond,” will explore the creation of a drastically different educational experience.

Children born next year will graduate from high school in 2040, and the world they’ll enter as adults will have radically transformed. How do we prepare tomorrow’s students, especially those from underserved communities, for success in our evolving world?

Following our inaugural forum, we will publish a white paper that summarizes the discussions and features an actionable roadmap to help solve the educational issues of today and tomorrow. The white paper will be released during TFASC’s 10-Year Anniversary Celebration in May 2022.

Impact Spotlights

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we will recognize the leaders of TFASC’s movement over the past decade by profiling them and their outstanding work. A new impact spotlight will be featured each week. In total, we will publish 50 impact spotlights, including profiles of 10 teachers, 10 alumni, 10 education partners, 10 supporters, and 10 catalysts.

All impact spotlight honorees will also be recognized during TFASC’s 10-Year Anniversary Celebration in May 2022.

Support Our Next Decade of Impact

TFA is proud to announce an adaptive strategy at the national level that includes the following 10-year goal: By 2030, twice as many children in communities where we work will reach key educational milestones indicating they are on a path to economic mobility and co-creating a future filled with possibility.

Additional support from donors will be crucial to make this 10-year goal a reality and to scale our impact over the next decade in South Carolina.

As we reflect on our past decade of impact, we are proud to not only have placed and supported hundreds of outstanding teachers, but we found opportunities to improve our communities with intentionality. Your continued support is essential as we work to scale our impact over the next decade.
