Through Teach For America, remarkable people from all academic majors and career backgrounds help our nation deliver on the promise of equal opportunity for all kids. Fewer than 10 percent of kids from low-income communities graduate from college. Teach For America is looking for leaders committed to eliminating this inequity, which limits the opportunities of kids, families, and communities. We know it is possible. Corps members have the chance to make an indelible positive impact on the lives of their students by teaching for at least two years in urban and rural communities nationwide. They receive training, coaching, and support from Teach For America and are hired by principals as full-time, salaried teachers. As alumni, they apply their first-hand experience and the leadership skills they’ve developed to tackle educational inequity from every angle – inside schools and out. Together with colleagues of all backgrounds, they are part of a dynamic movement proving what’s possible – for kids, for a life of impact, for the future we share.
Through the combined efforts of our corps members, alumni, and the communities we partner with, we know that one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. Become a corps member!
