Apply for Teach for America

The first Teach for America application deadline is this Friday, 9/19!

Disparities in educational opportunities limit the life choices of the 13 million children growing up in poverty today, impacting their earning potential, voter participation, civic engagement and community involvement. These disparities disproportionately impact African-American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American children, who are three times as likely to live in a low-income area. You have the power to change this.

Teach For America seeks individuals from all backgrounds, academic majors, and career interests who possess the leadership skills and experience that will enable them to change the prospects of students growing up today and, ultimately, to effect fundamental change in our society that will make it a place of opportunity for all.

As a member of Teach For America, you will commit two years to teach in one of our country’s high-need public schools and will gain the skills, perspective, and experience that will help you make an impact over the long term and pursue your personal and professional goals, regardless of your career path.

This is a challenging endeavor, but by taking advantage of the support and resources that Teach For America provides, you can have a tremendous impact on the lives of your students.

Full salary and benefits. All academic majors.

    as someone who works with teach for america alumni in the federal government, I’d have to disagree. And trust me, most seniors don’t go for jobs that are at all worth while.

    Teach For America is a deeply flawed program and will not bring about educational justice. Wesleyan graduates can find much more constructive ways to work on poverty/social justice issues. Google ‘rethinking teach for america’
