Teach for America Bay Area

Thank You for Your Support

With support from our generous donors, we recruit, train, and develop teachers to expand learning opportunities for kids in some of the highest poverty communities in the Bay Area. As leaders outside the classroom, our teachers advocate for equity in school systems and every sector that shapes the broader education ecosystem.

Your support impacts:

  • Classrooms: Access to one-on-one classroom coaching and tailored professional development for a teacher for an entire school year
  • Schools: Training and support for alumni striving to be school leaders committed to amplifying the impact of great teachers
  • Systems: Essential operating support for Teach For America, helping to assure system-wide change
