Our ambassadors help spread our message — and make things fun!
The Alhadeff Future Teachers of Color (AFTOC) program was established in response to the under-representation of ethnic minorities in the field of education. This includes individuals who wish to become teachers, principals, superintendents, and educational association or instructional leaders.
Our student ambassadors work on a variety of projects aimed at recruiting and retaining AFTOC members, striving practices toward social justice in education and providing networking opportunities for participants.
For their efforts, they receive a $2,500 scholarship from the James Taylor Future Teachers of Color Endowment.
For more information on becoming an ambassador, contact Brenda Barrio.
