We value impact-driven leadership development and seek to embody such values through our Fellowship Program. We invite young Senegalese leaders from home and abroad to serve as full-time teachers in underserved communities, as well as gain first-hand awareness of the education crisis in Senegal.


In two years, our fellows will establish and work towards earnest goals that will help their pupils realize and reach their full potential. While doing so, fellows will develop their own leadership skills and contribute to potential solutions. Through teaching Senegal’s future with TFS, fellows will benefit from the following:
