Teach For America
Teach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education. To do this, we recruit and select committed recent college graduates and professionals of all backgrounds to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools across the country. We train and develop these corps members so that they have an immediate positive impact on their students. After corps members complete their two years in the corps, we foster their leadership as alumni as they strive to expand educational opportunity from all sectors. This year, more than 8,600 corps members are teaching 500,000 students in 52 regions across the country. They join more than 42,000 alumni of our program in a force of more than 50,000 leaders working toward a revolution in America's education system.
