To RECRUIT and SELECT Sierra Leone’s most dynamic, promising and talented transformational future leaders through a rigorous process to become part of a two-year fellowship programme, and a lifelong movement of Ambassadors for systemic change within and outside the classroom.
To TRAIN and equip fellows with knowledge, skills, values and mind-sets, to become effective teachers and lifelong advocates for educational justice and excellence in a six-week training institute taking place between the months of July and August. Fellows will be exposed to the Sierra Leone school curriculum, lesson planning, child-centred teaching techniques, student assessments and other modules that are critical and relevant to successful teaching.
To PLACE fellows in low-income schools in underserved rural communities where they can experience first-hand the educational injustices that they will be addressing. We have placed a particular emphasis on recruiting Fellows with socio-economically disadvantaged, rural backgrounds to commit to return to teach in their communities for positive impact.
To SUSTAIN the programme by building an ALUMNI of Ambassadors with a life-long commitment to ending injustices in education and other sectors in Sierra Leone. Teach For Sierra Leone Fellows and alumni will become advocates for the communities they serve – having successfully taught and achieved transformational change in their placement schools. TFSL through its alumni movement will build partnerships with local authorities, civic societies, corporate and public sectors to ensure a clear path to systemic educational improvements by addressing the root causes of educational inequity across all sectors. Teach For Sierra Leone alumni will advance into key leadership positions to continue TFSL mission at various levels due to their leadership skills.
