Teach For America finds, develops, and supports a diverse corps of outstanding leaders who make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to end educational inequity.
Teach For America is a force of over 56,000 alumni and corps members committed to expanding opportunity for all children through profound systemic change. From classrooms to districts and state houses across America, our leaders are re-imagining education to realize the day when every child has an equal opportunity to learn, to grow, to influence and to lead. Teach For America is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network.
An accelerated pace of learning is necessary for our students to close the opportunity gap. Our teachers excel in moving beyond traditional expectations for academic success for their students and equipping students to achieve transformational personal and academic outcomes. This means our children in Miami-Dade County Public Schools are now able to raise their hands and hopes in a fundamentally different way.
