Teach For America South Carolina

Join a community of passionate leaders who are creating an equitable future for South Carolina.

South Carolina has something to offer everyone. With easy access to cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Greenville, and Charleston, South Carolinians have the best of both city and small town lifestyles. Additionally, the warm weather and natural beauty of our beaches, lakes, and mountains makes hospitality and tourism one of our most profitable industries.

Life in South Carolina is centered around food, family, and community. Corps members are welcomed with open arms as they join alongside the distinguished and committed community members working tirelessly to make the joys of life in South Carolina a shared experience for all.
