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.
