Teach For All network partners share the belief that all children have potential not just to navigate the world they'll inherit, but to lead it—starting today. Because our work directly impacts students, Teach For All's Student Leader Advisory Council (SLAC) was created in 2018 to ensure that their voices and perspectives are included in the network's decisions and direction. 

We're thrilled to announce the selection of the 2022 Council and to introduce its eight new members, who are students of teacher or alumni of Teach For Armenia, Teach For India, Iespējamā Misija (Latvia), Enseña por México, Teach For Nigeria, Enseña Perú, Teach For Qatar, and Teach For Zimbabwe. The new members range in age from 14 to 17 and were selected from over 140 applicants from across the network, after multiple rounds of rigorous application reviews by global organization staff, network teachers, and alumni, with the outgoing students of the previous Council making the final selection decisions. Throughout this year, they'll collaborate with Teach For All's global organization and network partners, as well as other advisory committees, to contribute to our vision and work across the network.

We look forward to sharing much more about the 2022 Student Leader Advisory Council, its members, and their efforts over the coming months. Until then, visit the Council's  biography page to learn more about all of its members.
