Teach For America - Detroit
Teach For America corps members and alumni are leading some of the most successful efforts to close the achievement gap in communities nationwide.
We believe that in the next two decades we have the potential to dramatically increase our impact.
Most of the alumni currently holding leadership roles across the country came through Teach For America in the 1990s — a decade in which we produced around 4,000 alumni which is less than the number of corps members that join Teach For America every year. Our current alumni base numbers more than 20,000 and they are working in communities across the nation, as leaders to addressing the challenges that prevent our students from achieving at the highest levels.
