Young Professional Educators Academy

Join synerG young professionals and the Guilford Education Alliance for a leadership and community engagement program for Guilford County School’s young professionals (ages 21-39). Participants will gain connections to leaders in the community, classroom support, relationships with other teachers and experience in young professional organizations.

Through fun, interactive, and informative sessions held at various locations, and by attending optional socials with community leaders and opportunities to participate in local events, you will learn more about the area where you live and work.

Our goal, upon completion of the program, is that you will be empowered to leverage your knowledge and resources for the benefit of yourself, Guilford County Schools and the Guilford County community. Added bonus – 1.0 CEU Credit
