Changemakers and coalition builders are working in San Antonio to level the educational playing field for kids and communities.
San Antonio is truly a City on the Rise. Steeped in a rich cultural history exemplified by the World Heritage Site San Antonio Missions, the Alamo City has its eye on the future and designs on how to shape it. San Antonio is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States because of its attractiveness to both the tech and business industries and its small-town feel. With a myriad of organizations devoted to community growth and enrichment, San Antonio’s level of community engagement sets an example for the nation.
Teach For America is among those working towards a better tomorrow for San Antonio.
Over the past five years, we have brought over 500 teachers to work in San Antonio’s inner city and it’s currently a home to over 350 Teach For America alumni. In addition to the many teachers that remain in the classroom, TFA alumni serve on school boards, manage local nonprofits, and lead schools as principals and administrators. Alumni also work in a variety of private industries throughout San Antonio, including the law and medicine. In only a few short years, the TFA network has become a force for transformation.
