Teach for America

Teach For America recruits a national corps of recent college graduates from all academic majors to commit two years to teaching in schools where they are needed most. Corps members receive an intensive five weeks of training, where they gain experience teaching and are guided by veteran educators.

Each year, Teach For America selects almost 2,000 individuals, trains them during summer institutes, places them as full-time, paid teachers in urban and rural public schools, and coordinates a support network of financial assistance and alumni mentors to help them succeed during their two years as teachers and beyond.
