Future Educators of America (FEA) is an undergraduate club designed to help equip future teachers with the skills they need to be successful. Through volunteer opportunities at local schools as well as education and career development workshops, students give back to the Pittsburgh community while simultaneously gaining professional skills. FEA members also meet other students who have similar goals and learn about programs Pitt offers, such as CASE, MAT, and MOSAIC from upperclassmen with firsthand experience.  

FEA members have participated in a variety of volunteer events, including tutoring at after-school programs at Sci-Tech and UPrep High School and making snack bags for children at the Ronald McDonald House. Professionally, FEA members attended a workshop on “Creating an Engaging Lesson Plan” from Emily Lilly, the founder of the non-profit Pittsburgh Assistance Center for Educators and Students (PACES).  

FEA meets every other Monday during the fall and spring semesters at 9:00 p.m. For more information contact us at
