Teach For America Graduate Fellows Reimagine Mississippi
About the TFA Graduates Fellows Program
Teach For America-Mississippi and Delta State University have joined forces in order to reimagine what is possible for Mississippi by cultivating next generation change-makers and social entrepreneurs. A hand-selected cohort of 10 scholars regularly convenes to take courses with Delta State professors while sharing experiences in a collaborative, think-tank like environment offering fellows an opportunity to develop goals and accountability partnerships. Each fellow is also paired, through the program, with social entrepreneurs throughout the United States who have pursued a similar project. Through social entrepreneurship projects, each Fellow addresses the obstacles that are holding Mississippi back from progress and confront the issue in a ground-breaking approach, fostering impactful social innovation that can lead to creating the future they envision for Mississippi, their community and themselves. Delta State University’s graduate school provides Fellows with new skills and knowledge through tailored mentoring and course options that improves their ability to successfully reimagine Mississippi and better position themselves to be surrounded with experts in their chosen field.
