  • Tandem at the Charlottesville Pride Street Fair

    Tandem Friends students and faculty had so much fun at the Charlottesville Pride Street Fair, handing out school information, pronoun stickers, merch, and so much good and inclusive Tandem spirit. In addition to all of the new friends they made, they were delighted to have their table visited by so many alums and Tandem community members. Thanks to all of the students and staff who shared their time to help, and thanks to all who stopped by our table.
