Teacher Meetups
Connect with VIPKid teachers outside of the classroom! 
The most frequent events for the teacher community are VIPKid Meetups. Meetups are teacher-led gatherings (currently hosted online) that provide a place for VIPKid teachers to meet one another, connect in a meaningful way, learn something new, and provide support and friendship (among other things). In addition to this page, check the Weekly Teacher Update for the most up-to-date information and announcements related to Meetups.

 See the list of registered Virtual Meetups below. Click the Meetup title directly to see more details and register for each individual event. 

If you think there's a Meetup missing from the list, check back every few days as it is updated weekly. 

If you register for a Meetup but are no longer able to attend, please contact the host directly to let them know. Online platforms have limits on the number of participants, so hosts can open up that spot for another teacher to attend.
​​​​​​​

In-person Meetups are still on hold due to COVID-19, and we will be sure to let the community know as soon as there are any updates.
Welcome December!
Let's have a 'Snow Day' and meet up with VIPKid friends!

Events Code of Conduct

The Teacher community is unlike any other community out there. The goal for all events (teacher-led and those organized by staff) is to provide a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming environment for the VIPKid teacher community to connect, learn, engage, and have fun with one another. We value and appreciate the participation of all teachers and look forward to creating friendly and welcoming spaces for everyone in attendance—whether online or in person. 

VIPKid reserves the right to modify or adjust this Code of Conduct at any time and without notice. Your hosting of an event or registration or attendance at any event (teacher-led or one organized by staff) indicates your agreement to abide by the following principles: 


  1. Communicate with kindness. 
  2. Be mindful of how you interact with others.
  3. Assume the best intentions.
  4. Harassment and discrimination will not be tolerated. 
    • ​​​​​​​We are dedicated to providing a harassment and discrimination-free eventexperience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), technology choices, or membership in any protected class. We do not tolerate harassment of or discrimination against event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any event venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Meetups, Twitter, and other online media. Event attendees violating these expectations may be expelled from the event without any applicable refund at the discretion of the event organizers. ​​​​​​​
    • If you believe you are being harassed or discriminated against, or believe someone else is being harassed or discriminated against, or have any other concerns, please contact events@vipkid-intl.com. For Meetup-related concerns, please email meetup@vipkid-intl.com. 
  5. All those in attendance at events are expected to follow this Code of Conduct and the VIPKid Community Guidelines and may be asked to leave if any of these principles are violated. 

VIPKid endeavors to build a safe, supportive, and connected teacher community and works to create events and opportunities to empower teachers.  It is important that every event attendee adheres to these principles in order to create positive spaces in which the teacher community can continue to grow.

What is the Diversity Speaker Series?

In alignment with VIPKid’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and the Community Guidelines that were released last summer, the Diversity Speaker Series is a quarterly series of virtual events that will provide teachers with opportunities to hear from unique perspectives and viewpoints, challenge personal paradigms, and celebrate diversity. Thought leaders and experts will be invited to speak on a variety of topics that could include race, ethnicity, gender, identity, religion, age, veteran status, ability status, and social justice. 


As part of VIPKid’s diversity mission to create a global classroom where all are welcomed to learn, we believe that teachers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds are essential to our mission of inspiring and empowering every child for the future. VIPKid is working to live our DEI commitment in practice and this series is one aspect of ongoing efforts to address DEI across all areas of VIPKid. We hope this series will continue to nurture an inclusive teacher community where everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexual orientation, age, or other personal identity factors is welcomed and valued.


All teachers are invited to register for the Speaker Series. Please note that there will be limited space for these events. The speakers will be announced in the Weekly Teacher Update as soon as the information is available. ​​​​​​​

Some Terms to know:

Diversity: Diversity has come to refer to the various backgrounds and races that comprise a community, nation or other grouping. In many cases the term diversity does not just acknowledge the existence of diversity of background, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation and so on, but implies an appreciation of these differences 

Equity: Equity is the guarantee of fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all stakeholders, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have systemically prevented the full participation of historically underserved and underrepresented populations.

Inclusion: Authentically bringing traditionally excluded individuals and/or groups into processes, activities, and decision/policy making in a way that shares power.
​​​​​​​

Identity: Generally speaking, identity is the way that we as individuals perceive and express ourselves. In the context of this series, speakers may speak about the way that their identities have impacted their lives. Additionally, the series may invite you to reflect on your own identity more deeply or think about aspects of your identity that you may not have focused on previously.
