Who we Are:
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding college graduates and professionals who commit two years to teach in public schools in the nation's lowest income communities and become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity. Just as we seek great talent to join the corps and teach, we also need great talent for staff. We seek talented individuals of all backgrounds, with a strong record of achievement in their professional areas, to join our staff and play a critical role in enabling us to reach our ambitious goals. Visit www.teachforamerica.org/careers for a full list of open positions and more information.
In the 2009-10 school year, over 7,300 first- and second-year Teach For America corps members will teach in 35 regions across the United States. Since 1990, Teach For America corps members have reached approximately 3 million students. Nearly 17,000 Teach For America alumni are working in education and many other fields, where they continue to advocate for students and families in low-income communities. While only 1 in 10 corps members say they were interested in the teaching profession before joining Teach For America, more than two-thirds of our alumni remain in the field of education.
How we operate:
We are a high-growth, outcomes-oriented organization comprised of more than 1,200 staff members who bring a diversity of personal and professional backgrounds to their roles. Our entrepreneurial atmosphere and results-driven approach give staff members both latitude and structure in their work. Within the organization, there are a wide range of roles and teams, all of which operate with an unwavering focus on quantitative measures, a commitment to continuous improvement, and a relentless pursuit of our mission.
