Teach for America


Whatever you care most about—our economy, health issues, civil rights—a great education is at the heart of changing things for the better. Teach for America (TFA) trains and supports teachers for preschool through grade 12. TFA partners with public schools in 53 regions across the country to place teachers where they are most needed. The corps experience begins with rigorous summer training and student teaching, followed by structured coaching and development throughout the two-year commitment. Corps members are employed by schools and earn the same salary and benefits as other first-year teachers.
