TEACH FOR AMERICA is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all backgrounds and academic majors who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and who become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand opportunity for children.
Each year, Teach For America selects a corps of over 2,000 individuals, provides them with extensive training during summer institutes, places them as full-time, paid teachers in public schools, and provides ongoing support through a network of Teach For America staff, corps members, and alumni during their two years as teachers and beyond.
