Our Best of FLANC Conference will also showcase Project CAFE at our luncheon on Saturday, March 2, 2024.

Project CAFE is a teaching initiative aimed at recruiting and retaining teachers in world languages. Our goal is to strengthen the teacher pipeline with enthusiastic young people while also addressing the critical shortage of world language teachers currently in North Carolina.

One way we do this is by inviting FLANC members to nominate students who would make excellent world language teachers. Above all, Project CAFE is a world language teacher’s recognition of students who show promise for teaching; it is not an academic award. This year, FLANC will be creating a video to celebrate students nominated for Project CAFE; nominating teachers are strongly encouraged to attend the conference! 

Project CAFE aims to plant the seed (as early as elementary school) that being a world language teacher is a rewarding and exciting career choice! To accomplish this, we need your help! Nominate a deserving student (or multiple students!).  Nominations will be accepted through February 26, 2024.

If you have questions, please contact the FLANC Spring Conference chair, Bonnie Wang, at 2vp@flanc.org
