Backed by its legacy of fighting for equality, the Alabama region continues to break down racial barriers to prove all kids can achieve at high levels.
The story of Alabama is a story of triumph. Last year marked the 50th Anniversary for Voting Rights in our country, enacted due to the courage and commitment of community members across Alabama and across our entire country. In Alabama, children led the efforts to ensure every citizen has the opportunity to use their voice for change.
Teach For America Alabama was chartered on these same principles. Many parts of Alabama today are still honored for the contributions its people made during the Civil Rights Movement. We truly serve in the shadow of this history, often in the very same communities where this movement began and thrived.
This year we celebrate the eighth year of our partnership with the state of Alabama and our many community partners to ensure that one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
