Latino Community Initiative
The Latino Community Initiative seeks to enable Latino leaders to be the preeminent advocates of opportunity for Latino children. We work in partnership with Latino familias, communities, and organizations across the nation to create catalytic change.
Together at Teach For America, we form una fuerza of 3,000 Latino corps members, alumni, and staff dedicated to giving Latino children access to a path-changing education.

In the Classroom
One in six Latino students attends a high school where graduating isn’t the norm. In classrooms across the country, our corps members are working with passion and commitment to give their students an education that will change that and expand Latino students’ opportunities in life. You can join them. Sign up to learn more.
Watch a day in the life of one of our incredible teachers, Lorenzo Garza.
In the Community
It’s crucial that we continue to advance conversations about education and opportunity in the Latino community. Check out our Google Hangout recording, below, moderated by Univision’s Enrique Acevedo, and add your voice on Facebook or Twitter.
On Our Staff

We believe completely that if you are brought to the United States as a child, you should be able to pursue an education and a successful path contributing to society without fear of deportation. This is why we’re committed to actively recruiting eligible individuals with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status to our teaching corps. Read more about our DACA admissions process.
