TWA’s 2012 program will be the second annual exchange of Student Teachers from LEAP School with San Francisco partner schools. For the past four years, TWA has brought young leaders and faculty from LEAP for a cultural exchange experience.  This year, we are expanding our reach to new regions where there is a large base of TWA support. We are thrilled to have Washington DC as our second program site.  We are grateful to 2011 Teaching Fellow and teacher at Howard Public Charter Middle School for facilitating this new host school partner.

The purpose of this visit is to generate a meaningful exchange between LEAP alumni who are training to become teachers and Bay Area school communities.  The internship focuses on providing these young student teachers with opportunities to observe “best practices” in teaching at top schools in the U.S.  Additionally, and of equal importance, is the exchange of teaching and learning through which American and South African peers can celebrate their values, connect culturally, find their voices, and collaborate on breaking down barriers to understanding and collective problem solving for equality in education.

Our goal is to raise $6,000 for the two DC interns. This sponsorship covers the cost of their airfare, per diem, and transportation. Any amount you can contribute will be much appreciated.

Please support Teach With Africa’s Student Teacher Intern Exchange Program by donating to offset the costs of two South African interns from LEAP Science and Maths School’s placement at Howard Public Charter Middle School in Washington DC.
