Join Our Familia: Take Action

  • In the Classroom
  • In the Community
  • On Our Staff
  • For Dreamers

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—apply to the corps. And watch a day in the life of one of our incredible teachers, Lorenzo Garza.

 

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.

 

We’re deeply humbled to be recognized as a great place to work by both Fortune and Latina Style. Latinos are leaders at all levels of our staff. See what roles we have open for you.

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.
