Teach for America
Teach For America works in partnership with communities to expand educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty. Founded in 1990, Teach For America seeks the most promising leaders of this generation early in their careers who have demonstrated the values and leadership necessary to make systemic change. Our diverse, outstanding corps members make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and have a profound impact on their students. Their classroom leadership becomes the foundation for long-term leadership. Through these two years, corps members gain context, clarity, and conviction to lead a life of impact from any sector or field they choose. Beyond their two years, corps members become part of a network of over 50,000 leaders working together across sectors to shape the political, economic, and social future of our nation.
