Thank You For Your Support

Teach For America Chicago Region is so grateful for our existing supporters. All gifts help our effort to recruit, select, train and support corps members and alumni.

Partner Spotlight

Teach For America - Chicago is proud to be sponsored by the Illinois Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service.

Our Chicago corps members are also AmeriCorps members, connected to a national service movement and eligible to receive an education award after successfully completing each year of teaching.

Partner Spotlight

Teach For America – Chicago would like to thank Exelon and JPMorgan Chase for their committed partnership and support of Teach For America – Chicago’s STEM Initiative.  Both Exelon and JPMorgan Chase have become two of our strongest corporate champions, donating a combined total of $150,000 in 2013 to recruit, select, train, and support Chicago and Northwest Indiana’s math and science corps members.
