Teach for America
Teach for America is an organization that seeks to expand the educational opportunities for low-income children across the nation. Teach for America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level of our education system toward the goal of a level playing field for all children. These leaders start their paths as corps members, helping students in high-need communities make the academic progress that expands their opportunities. Deeply affected by their teaching experience, the alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields. Individuals who have demonstrated leadership potential, a respect for individuals of all backgrounds, and a desire to help children succeed are encouraged to apply. As a corps member, you will be a full-time teacher and receive a full salary and the same comprehensive health benefits as other beginning teachers in your school district.
