Armenia must prioritize education. We simply have no other choice, says 2015 TFA Fellow Vagarshak Matikyan.

TFA is premised on the idea that every child deserves access to excellent education.Last fall, AGBU held a series of lectures with founder and CEO Larisa Ryan in cities across the United States to inform the community about the state of education in Armenia and TFAs role in its development. Driven by a belief in pursuing innovative solutions to social problems, TFA recruits the best and the brightest from Armenia and the Armenian Diaspora to teach in the Armenian educational system and increase the quality of education in Armenia.

With the continued financial and strategic support of the AGBU and Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, TFA will expand its program in the coming years by recruiting, training, and placing Fellows in underserved schools throughout Armenia to ensure that all students can realize their full potential. One of our biggest goals this year is to increase our number of diaspora recruits. For the 2016 fellowship, we are specifically targeting participants from the United States and Russia. We anticipate to receive anywhere between 250-300 applications and select our second cohort of 25-30 Fellows for the 2016 fellowship. We work through volunteers, campus representatives, and brand ambassadors to help us identify the best candidates to join our movement in Armenia, said Ryan.

With the continued support of the AGBU and Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, TFA will expand its program in the coming years by recruiting, training, and placing Fellows in underserved schools.

From July 1-31, TFA held its Summer Institute at the United World College Dilijan School. The course is designed to both train Fellows for their two-year teaching commitment and encourage students from rural communities to develop a love of learning. The training consists of two main parts: teaching at a summer school and attending seminars, workshops, and individual sessions with the TFA team. TFA mentors prepare the Fellows to be effective teachers and guide them to overcome the obstacles they may face in the classroom. During their teaching commitment, each Fellow will reach approximately 100 students.
