Our corps members and alumni are smart, goal-oriented individuals who have a proven track record of achievement and leadership. After their two-year teaching commitment, our alumni work in many fields including education, policy, law, medicine, business, and the nonprofit sector, and assume leadership roles in their professional and civic lives.
There are several ways for employers and graduate schools to reach interested Teach For America corps members and alumni.

Each month, we feature opportunities that align with the diverse interests and needs of our base. If you are interested in featuring an opportunity in our newsletters, post them on JOB and then email email@example.com. Please note that we cannot feature all the opportunities that come our way.
