1 Teachers Without Borders on Campus An FLC Registered Student Organization

2 What is TWBOC? Teachers Without Borders On Campus at FLC is a Registered Student Organization, formed in October 2010, which is affiliated with the international Teachers Without Borders group ( Teachers Without Borders connects teachers to information and each other to create local change on a global scale. “A world with well-trained, well-informed teachers is a world with smarter, healthier, wealthier, more peaceful individuals and societies. Support for a single teacher can foster the well-being of hundreds, even thousands, of learners and their communities.”

3  We build student leaders because they have the drive, the enthusiasm, and the desire to make a difference.  We provide students with the materials and knowledge needed to impact the educational gap.  We support the professional development of educators by exploring current educational issues locally, nationally, and internationally.  We also support the collaboration of student organizations on campus who share the same or similar aspirations and goals.  Our best intention is to think and act locally and impact globally. OUR MISSION
