Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding college graduates and working professionals - of all academic majors, backgrounds and career interests - who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders for expanding educational opportunity for all children.
We seek outstanding individuals who possess the leadership skills and experience that will enable them to change the prospects of students growing up today and, ultimately, to effect the fundamental change in our society that will make it a place of opportunity for all.
This is an opportunity for all interested parties, not strictly current seniors.
Specifically, graduate students completing your programs any time before June 2013, there’s still time to apply to join the 2013 corps - sign up to receive more information and possibly speak with a Teach For America alumnus. If you’re even slightly interested in learning more, please sign up for more information. We want to talk to you!
You have the power to change things. Learn more information about the 2013 Teach For America corps on the Teach for America website. Open an application at www.teachforamerica.org/apply. Also feel free to email with questions.
