About Us

Since 2011, Teach For America Delaware has worked to ensure students across the state have access to leaders who empower them to learn, lead, and thrive. Thousands of children have been impacted by our network of transformational leaders. Working in partnership with community and education ecosystems, legislators, and families, we are committed to making educational equity a reality for all Delaware students.

In Delaware, we are focused on attracting exceptional equity-minded individuals to teach and lead while implementing new ways of creating value to our school and community partners through: Teacher recruitment, training, and retention strategies, STEM-focused teacher placement and leadership development, equity-centered leadership development experiences, and alumni impact.

Our Community

The Delaware region currently partners with the Christina School District in Wilmington, as well as EastSide Charter School and Thomas Edison Charter School. Teach For America Delaware alumni work tirelessly across industries to deepen their impact for children throughout Delaware. Our state alumni network extends from Wilmington to Seaford and includes leaders in K-12 education systems, higher education, corporations, nonprofits, government, and social entrepreneurship.

Living Here

Living Here

Our small but mighty state has something for everyone without the high cost of living that neighboring states may have. Wilmington is the center of arts and culture, with theater, music and food festivals throughout the year. Newark, home to the University of Delaware, also provides an equally vibrant restaurant scene.  If outdoor experiences are more of your vibe, Delaware is home to some of the best beaches on the east coast, including Bethany Beach, which is in the top 20 beaches in the country and 17 state parks.
