African American Teaching Fellows is a non-profit organization that recruits and trains African-American students to become teachers in Charlottesville City Schools and Albemarle County Public Schools. Fellows, who must be enrolled in a college or university, can receive scholarships totaling up to $15,000 over three years[1]. Each year AATF hosts the John Baker Legacy Dinner to honor local educators and to raise funds for the non-profit[2]. AATF also runs an intensive summer professional development institute which began in 2012.[3] Tamara Wilkerson is the organization's executive director, and Jaime Hawkins is the director of programs.[4]
