TALMA: A LEADERSHIP FELLOWSHIP
TALMA as a Leadership Fellowship: What elevates TALMA from a summer of volunteer teaching to a Fellowship is the incredible professional development opportunities it offers its participants. While Fellows spend their mornings teaching in their placement schools, several afternoons and/or evenings each week are devoted to inspirational enrichment. TALMA brings Fellows a variety of first-class speakers, workshops and experiential learning opportunities that enable participants to gain exposure to innovative and entrepreneurial social ventures that are changing the social justice scene and inspire our Fellows to grow their leadership.
