On Thursday, February 1, New York University’s Reynolds Program In Social Entrepreneurship will sponsor a presentation by the founder and president of Teach For America, Wendy Kopp.
The talk will take place from 5 to 6:30 pm at the Schimmel Auditorium, 40 West 4th St., Manhattan, and is open to the entire University community.
The event is part of an ongoing Reynolds Program speaker series, “Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century.” The series brings nationally known change makers to NYU to encourage and develop the next generation of public service leadership and participants.
Kopp turned a simple idea and unwavering conviction into a vehicle for solving one of the nation’s deepest social problems — educational inequality. Her organization, Teach for America, is the national corps of recent college graduates of all academic majors who commit to two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity.
