Last November, Dallas Teacher Residency was one of three organizations selected to participate in the GroundFloor, an accelerator aimed at providing financial, human, and social capital to early stage social-ventures. DTR will spend the next year working alongside United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, and their GroundFloor team, until we place our first cohort of program residents in Dallas Independent School District schools beginning this fall (August 2014).
We are certainly fortunate to have secured such a fantastic partner in United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and the GroundFloor, at such an early stage in our venture.
I personally have enjoyed our work together to date, and look forward to our accomplishments moving forward.
