About TFA's One Day

Teach For America's One Day Studio is a team of storytellers who bring to life the impact Teach For America and its network and allies have on students, schools, and communities. ODS produces high-quality stories, videos, and podcasts that center on and uplift the voices of those most proximate to the work of improving student outcomes and challenging the systemic inequities that prevent all students from learning, leading, and thriving. This includes TFA alumni, corps members, staff leaders, students, and community partners working for educational equity and excellence for all students. 

One Day features original, reported stories in a variety of formats created by our staff of journalists, videographers and filmmakers, and podcast producers, as well as freelancers. We also publish opinion essays. Our stories are found in six topic areas: Top IssuesIdeas & SolutionsPolicy & AdvocacyOpinion, Podcast, and Videos.

Our stories can also be found in the One Day today monthly email newsletter and on Teach For America’s social media channels.
