So we’re strengthening the movement of educational equity, but how? There are three parts to our approach:
There are more than 16 million children growing up in poverty in the U.S.
Our mission is to enlist, develop, and mobilize as many as possible of our nation's most promising future leaders to grow and strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence.
We recruit remarkable and diverse individuals to become teachers in low-income communities. They commit to teach for two years and are hired by our partner public schools across the country. During these two years they are called corps members.
We train and support corps members in the practices of great teachers and leaders. With hard work, perseverance, and strong partnerships with their students, students’ families, and communities, corps members can dramatically increase the opportunities available to their students in school and in life.
Watch It Work
What does it look like to be a part of a movement? We’ll let Johnathon and Erica tell you.
