Teach for the Philippines Donation Drive
In the month of October, the Antonio’s Group will be doing its part to help build a better nation. For every guest who visits either Antonio’s or Breakfast at Antonio’s, the Antonio’s Group will make a donation on their guests’ behalf to Teach for the Philippines.
Established in 2012, Teach for the Philippines works to realize their vision of a country in which all children have access to an excellent education. They hope to achieve this by doing the following.
RECRUITE PROMISING INDIVIDUALS TO TEACH CHILDREN. Teach for the Philippines recruits top graduates and young professionals to teach full-time in public schools for a period of two years.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS’ LIVES. Placed in the nation’s most underserved schools, Fellows respond to the gaps in resources suffered by the public education system, particularly the severe shortage of teachers. In doing so, they act as both mentors and instructors to public school students by inspiring them to aim for ambitious personal goals and by equipping them with the proper skills needed to achieve these goals.
EMPOWER FUTURE LEADERS TO DRIVE CHANGE. Teach for the Philippines’ training program and immersion in public schools allows them to equip Fellows with insights into the root causes of education inequity and give them the tools to begin addressing this issue. Upon completion of the program, Alumni pathways set Fellows on career paths where they can best realize their continued commitment to an education reform agenda, inside and outside the classroom.
TRANSFORM THE COUNTRY. Teach for the Philippines is about nation building. Given the strong correlation between a country’s development and its investment in education, they strive to build the foundations for a stronger economy and a more vibrant democracy.
