Teach For America corps members are assigned to teach a grade—pre-K through grade 12—in one of 53 regions across the country.
When applying to Teach For America, you may already have a place in mind where you’d like to teach and a favorite subject or grade level. Or you may be open to going to any of our 53 regions and teaching any age and subject. Either way, you won’t need to decide until after you’re admitted to the corps. Once admitted, you’ll be given the chance to research our regions in depth and consider the factors most important to you in a region. Read more about the process.
We take three things into account when determining what and where you’ll teach:
- Need and opportunity in the regions
- Qualification requirements
- Your preferences
