Teach For America works toward the day when every child will receive an excellent and equitable education. We find and nurture leaders who commit to expanding opportunity for low-income students, beginning with at least two years teaching in a public school.

As a Teach For America corps member, you’ll be part of a movement changing the future for America’s students, while gaining invaluable leadership experience that will fuel your career.

The circumstances children are born into predict the opportunities they will have in life. But Teach For America has learned that dramatic progress is possible. It takes bold, grounded leaders working together, inside and outside of schools, fighting for the aspirations of children and their families.

Working shoulder to shoulder with students, educators, and community members, Teach For America corps members support the academic and personal growth of students. The impact corps members have in the classroom fuels a lifelong commitment to their students and shapes the trajectory of their lives and careers.
