Looking for fun and easy ways to support Brothers serving as Teach For America corps members? Here are just a few:
- Stay connected!
Brothers serving as corps members often find themselves alone in a new place, much like when you first entered college as a freshman. Help them feel at home by connecting with Brothers new to your area or by sending messages to let them know you’re thinking of them. Keep in mind that corps members are extremely busy and may not have the time to reply regularly, but it’s extremely comforting knowing Brothers are just a call away.
- Keep them motivated!
When new members enter the corps, they go through an intense training process at Institute. Since being a corps member can be emotionally and physically draining, consider sending your Brothers care packages during Institute and motivational notes throughout the year to show you’re proud of them and remind them of the impact they’re making.
