Teach For America, remarkable people from all academic majors and career
backgrounds help our nation deliver on the promise of equal opportunity for all
kids. Corps members have the chance to make an indelible positive impact on the
lives of their students by teaching for at least two years in urban and rural
communities nationwide. They receive training, coaching, and support from Teach
For America and are hired by principals as full-time, salaried teachers. As
alumni, they apply their first-hand experience and the leadership skills
they’ve developed to tackle educational inequity from every angle – inside
schools and out. Together with colleagues of all backgrounds, they are part of
a dynamic movement proving what’s possible – for kids, for a life of impact,
for the future we share.
For America’s network in the 2015-16 school year includes nearly 9,000 corps
members, 52 nationwide partner regions, and nearly 42,000 alumni working in
education and many other sectors towards systemic change.
