Expand Life Opportunities for Latinx Students

One in six Latinx students attends a high school where graduating isn’t the norm. In classrooms across the country, our corps members are working with passion and commitment to give their students an education that will change and expand life opportunities for Latinx students.

You can join them. Learn more about joining the TFA corps.

For DACA Recipients

We believe completely that if you are brought to the United States as a child, you should be able to pursue an education and a successful path contributing to society without fear of deportation.

We’re committed to recruiting eligible individuals with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status, often referred to as ‘Dreamers.’ Read more joining TFA as a DACA recipient.

Explore Roles on Teach For America's Staff

We’re deeply humbled to be recognized as a great place to work by both Fortune and Latina Style. Latinxs are leaders at all levels of our staff. See the roles we have open for you.

Advocate for the Latinx Community

It’s crucial that we continue to advance conversations about education and opportunity in the Latinx community. Learn more about the role of Latinx community in education and join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Building Leadership Capacity for the Latinx Community


Our work would not be possible without our national Latinx partners and collaborators. Explore resources for advocating for and supporting Latinx students and families, at any stage of your career.
