All kids deserve the chance to reach their full potential—but today, only eight percent of students growing up in poverty graduate from college by age 24, compared with 80 percent of students in more affluent areas. This limits life options, affects families and communities, and has significant social and economic implications for our country.
Teach For America is a part of building the national movement to change this. We know it’s possible to give all kids a great education and the opportunities that come with it. By teaching for two years in Teach For America’s corps, you will join thousands of leaders helping students in low-income communities make the academic progress that will expand their opportunities for the future. You’ll develop the leadership skills, perspective, and commitment that will drive you to be a lifelong advocate for kids regardless if you stay in education or not. And you’ll build relationships with fellow corps members and others in your community working to meet this challenge.
This year, 10,400 corps members are teaching in 46 regions across the country, while nearly 28,000 Teach For America alumni continue working from inside and outside the field of education for the changes necessary to make a great education a reality for all.
You have the power to change things. Apply to the 2013 corps.
NEXT Application Deadline to join the 2013 corps: Friday, November 2, 2012 by 11:59PM PST
Full salary and benefits. Federal student loans deferred. All majors and career backgrounds.
