OUR APPROACH
We empower all students

Every student is capable of achieving academic success, yet the public education system was not designed to meet students of color where they dream —  instead they marginalize them and underestimate their abilities. TAF partners with school districts, educators, and organizations to challenge the current public education system. We help schools create collaborative, anti-racist learning environments grounded in equity where every student wins. Our multi-layered STEMbyTAF approach transforms public education from all angles by serving the students and supporting the educators who teach them.

OUR PROGRAMS

Our programs are rooted in equity.

We address the entire public education system, from top-to-bottom, providing STEM skills and equitable, anti-racist education environments where all students can succeed and by working with emerging and established education leaders of color to improve representation at every level.
