  • Can I have a Co-Teach Star?

    Definitely! If you know someone who might like to share the responsibilities of hosting events, please let us know.

  • Is it possible to host events in my rural area?

    Absolutely, in fact, we would love for teachers in remote and rural areas to participate.

  • Is there a minimum amount of teachers that need to attend an event?

    No, your event can have as few as 5 teachers or as many as 500. It's entirely up to you.

  • Can there be multiple community leaders in my region?

    Yes, as long as each community area is approximately 20 mins away, regions may have multiple communities in each city.

  • How much time would I need to commit to run events?

    Each Teach Star must run 2 to 4 events per year, these can be a mix between casual meet-ups, wellbeing events and guest speaker events. With the use of our event software and templates, the planning process has been designed to keep admin time to a minimum.
