One DayTeach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education.
A Solvable Problem
Although 16 million American children face the extra challenges of poverty, an increasing body of evidence shows that they can achieve at the highest levels.
We recruit a diverse group of leaders with a record of achievement who work to expand educational opportunity, starting by teaching for two years in a low-income community.
Investing in Leaders
We provide intensive training, support and career development that helps these leaders increase their impact and deepen their understanding of what it takes to eliminate educational inequity.
A growing movement of leaders, nearly 37,000 strong, works at every level of education, policy and other professions, to ensure that all children can receive an excellent education.
Teach For America corps members and alumni are helping lead an educational revolution in low-income communities across the country.
