A child’s education begins long before they walk into an elementary school and unfortunately, so does their odds of attaining an excellent education. So that we can join the first line of defense, we launched the Early Childhood Education (ECE) initiative in 2006, which places corps members in preschool and pre-K classrooms to help set our youngest scholars on the path to success.
Native children experience some of the highest levels of poverty and illiteracy in our country. With four regions that reach Native children and a growing number of corps members who share the same background, we aim to give them the excellent education they deserve through our Native Alliance Initiative.
Our nation’s students need to excel in math and science if we want to continue to compete in a global economy. To help them be the next great innovators of the world, we recruit outstanding individuals with backgrounds in these fields to become corps members as part of our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math initiative.
Teach For America launched the You Served For America, Now Teach For America initiative in 2012 to bring more veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces in to the fight against educational inequity. The initiative aims to put the power of transitioning military professionals and veterans to work in our nation’s highest-need schools. Students and whole schools will greatly benefit from veterans’ depth of experience, strength in leadership and desire to continue to serve their country.
