Providing educational opportunities
for the underserved
Teach for America presentation at LHU
Feb. 10, 2012
Lock Haven University’s Phi Sigma Pi National Honors fraternity will host a talk on the importance of Teach for America, a non-profit organization that aims to eliminate educational inequity. Amanda Berkey will discuss her experience through Teach for America on February 26, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. in Ulmer Planetarium. This event is free and open to the public.
Ms. Berkey graduated from Penn State University and was involved as a classroom mentor in the Teach for America program. Because poverty limits educational opportunity, Teach for America and its educators work to ensure that children growing up in low-income communities receive an excellent education.
This event is sponsored by the Phi Sigma Pi National Honors Fraternity at LHU. With their tripod base of Service, Scholarship, and Leadership, the club will spend this semester encouraging others to get involved in philanthropic and non-profit efforts, such as Teach for America.
