Over 60,000 leaders joined Teach For America to cultivate their professional skills, feed their passion, and positively impact the lives of students in low-income communities. You can too!


By committing to teach for two years in a low-income community, Teach For America’s corps members empower young minds and build new perspectives by planning lessons that change the way their students see the world.

 

Once the two years are completed, many corps members stay in the classroom and continue to lay the foundation for the next generation. Others pursue leadership roles in schools or launch careers in fields that shape excellent education. Which will be your path?

CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR LIFE AND THE NEXT GENERATION WITH ONE MEANINGFUL CAREER MOVE.

“While I knew my goal was to impact my students’ lives, what no one prepared me for was how my beautiful students would change my life. I’ve become more sensitive to world issues including the inequity gap, special education, and LGBTQ issues. I will continue to support and advocate for my students and their families throughout my career.”

“[Experience as a corps member] taught me that if we reform education, we can transform the life trajectories of urban youth and empower them to be the leaders that our country needs. When I saw my students’ unlimited potential and realized that their progress is being stunted by our broken system, I knew I had to commit to fighting for them.”
