Teach For America

Everyone deserves choices in life. But the 16 million U.S. kids living in low-income communities aren’t getting an education that gives them the opportunity to make choices—the choice of college, a career they love, or forging their own path. As a result, their lives are more likely to be defined by their circumstances than by their potential. You can help change this as a classroom leader in one of our 52 urban and rural regions nationwide. Our teachers are full-time, fully salaried educators working in PreK-12 schools. After your two-year commitment, we have programs, initiatives and fellowships for alumni to pursue multiple career paths including school and district leadership, social entrepreneurship, education policy, and non-profit leadership. All academic and professional backgrounds welcome to apply (no previous education experience or credentials required).
