Overview:

We’re excited to formally welcome you back to the Los Angeles Region with our First Eight Weeks Programming. Starting strong is important, and we believe the First Eight Weeks (F8W) of the academic year are an incredible opportunity to orient ourselves and our students to what matters most. Throughout F8W programming,  you will have an opportunity to continue building on the foundations you established during onboarding and their Institute experience. Attendance is expected for all corps members. If you have school site conflicts, email John Stoneburner (john. stoneburner@teachforamerica.org).
