Annual Global Conference

Teach For All’s annual Global Conference brings together members of the network’s broader community to connect, learn, and celebrate with each other. 

Each year, hundreds of attendees—including partner CEOs, staff, participants, and alumni; global organization staff; supporters from across the network, external experts; local leaders and community members; and local and international students (the most popular guests)—gather to share the experience of deeply exploring a critical theme while being immersed in a partner’s local context.  Past Global Conferences have been held in Chicago, USA; London, England; Mumbai, India; Santiago, Chile; Yunnan Province, China, PRC; Puebla, Mexico; Auckland, New Zealand; and Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. Learning and Reflection, Leadership for Change, Further Together, and Reimagining Education are among the themes our global community has explored.

Co-hosted by Enseña por Colombia, the conference will convene nearly 500 members of the Teach For all community, including staff, supporters, board members, alumni and social entrepreneurs from over 40 countries. Together with members of the Colombian education community we will explore the potential of collective leadership at all levels to ensure all children have access to the education, support, and opportunity they need to fulfill their potential.
