Teach For America works alongside our partners in Charlotte-Piedmont Triad to create opportunities for kids in our most underserved communities.

Our corps members and alumni leaders are making a huge impact across Charlotte-Piedmont Triad. Since 2014, 18 Teach For America corps members have been nominated as Guilford County Schools "Rookie Teacher of the Year." Our corps members and alumni impacted nearly 25,000 students in the 2017-18 school year. 

Informed and inspired by their students, our alumni are leading in schools, making policy, founding advocacy organizations, and developing businesses. Currently, 18 principals are Teach For America alumni. In 2017, two alumni were named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 list. 

To continue growing our impact, Charlotte-Piedmont Triad is focused on cultivating models of excellence at the school and classroom levels and activating the collective leadership of our network. We aim to leverage the scale and diversity of our over 700-member-strong network by creating spaces to learn, innovate, and take action together.

“TFA prepared me to teach but also helped me question the status quo from both inside and outside of a school.”
