Corps members work in 51 regions around the country. After interviewing for the corps, you’ll be asked to rank 10 regions where you’d like to work, including one “high-need” region. Compare regions by selecting them on the map to find which ones fit your personal needs.

Consider the following when comparing regions:

  • Compare factors like cost of living, certification cost, and other details that are most important to you.
  • Note the minimum GPA and other requirements for teaching in the region.
  • Check the summer training schedule to make sure you can attend all the sessions for the regions you choose.
  • You must select and rank 10 TFA regions where you want to teach, at least one of which must be a region we’ve designated as “high need.” Our high-need regions are: Buffalo, Eastern North Carolina, Greater Delta: Mississippi & Arkansas, Oklahoma City, and Las Vegas Valley.

Select two or more regions below to compare.

We offer financial assistance to help with moving and training costs. You’ll have the opportunity to apply for it during the corps application process.

While we work hard to place you in one of your preferred regions, we encourage you to be open to a variety of placement options. Your preferences have no bearing on whether you’re admitted to the corps. Learn what’s taken into account when determining what and where you’ll teach.
