Compare regions to find which ones fit your needs.
Consider the following:
- After interviewing, you’ll select and rank 10 TFA regions.
- Check out cost of living, certification costs, and other important details.
- Review the minimum GPA, summer training start date, and other regional requirements.
- At least one of the regions you rank must be a region we’ve designated as “high need.”
- High-need regions are: Buffalo, Eastern North Carolina, Greater Delta: Mississippi & Arkansas, Oklahoma City, and Las Vegas.
Select two or more regions to compare.
While we work hard to place you in one of your preferred regions, you’re encouraged 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.
Note: We offer financial assistance to help with moving and training costs. You’ll have the opportunity to apply for it during the application process.
Opened in 1990 as one of the original Teach For America sites, Eastern North Carolina is a rural region with deep roots in the community and making big changes for kids.
Educators, community advocates, and business leaders agree: the future of Las Vegas is in its classrooms, not in its casinos.
The Greater Delta remains defined by its greatest asset: its people. Together, we can transform and expand opportunities for kids in Mississippi and Arkansas.
Once a stop on the underground railroad and one of the first cities to integrate schools, Buffalo holds its history close while looking to the future.
Our Oklahoma City region serves two distinct communities: the urban, bustling Oklahoma City community, and Lawton, an area with a rich Native history that’s home to a large military family community. With a diverse population of nearly 1.5 million, the Oklahoma City and Lawton metro areas have an underserved population with children who face considerable challenges.
