The Best Parties During Teach for America’s 25th Anniversary Summit in DC

Everyone has their favorite teacher!

And if they were in Teach for America, your favorite teacher may be descending on Washington, D.C. this weekend for Teach for America’s 25th Anniversary Summit hitting the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from Feb. 5-6.

We don’t know what’s going on inside the Convention Center, but we can tell you the happening parties occurring after hours.

Oh! And before we get in trouble: The events below are in no way, shape or form officially connected to TFA’s Summit. They’re super unofficial, but still should be fun!

Friday, February 5

  • Head to Howard Theatre (620 T Street NW) for “The Educators Summit Kick-Off Party.” Enjoy the best in hip hop and Top 40 music thanks to the sounds of DJ K Meta. Attire is casual. RSVP!
