We are so excited to announce that we will start providing teacher stipends thanks to the generous funding from the Harold Simmons Foundation. Sponsors whose JWACs have participated in at least five Council events will earn $250 in May. One stipend is awarded for each JWAC.
In working directly with high schools, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth has encountered numerous educators devoted to enriching their students’ knowledge of world affairs and expanding international learning opportunities for their students. These teachers demonstrate leadership by going above and beyond their normal responsibilities. Just as these teachers feel it is important to help their students develop a better understanding of the world, we at the Council feel it is equally important to recognize the efforts of these dedicated individuals.
$250 will be awarded to the first 25 sponsors that submit their tracking sheets by May 1.
