Deadline Friday January 24thTeach for America - Nationwide
Teach For America (TFA) is helping eliminate this injustice by finding, training, and supporting leaders committed to equality. Their journey begins in the classroom and lasts a lifetime. These individuals take on an incredible challenge and spend two years teaching and unlocking the potential of students in low-income communities. Through this experience they develop as leaders and build lasting relationships with students, fellow teachers, and community members. As alumni, they join a nationwide network fighting for change.
The students our corps members teach are often several academic years behind their more affluent peers. They face the daily challenges of poverty and know a history of low expectations that make it hard to see their own potential. To address these challenges, our corps members must be more than just effective teachers. Corps members who can put their students on a different life path must also be great leaders. This philosophy is the basis for the Teaching As Leadership framework—the foundation of our training and support program. Training begins with a rigorous summer training institute and includes one-on-one coaching and access to thousands of online resources throughout the corps experience. Teaching in a low-income community is an extraordinary challenge, but corps members don’t face it alone. Our corps members, alumni, staff, and partners form a network of development and support. Corps members who take advantage of these resources and take responsibility for their own success show the most growth in leadership both inside and outside the classroom.
