Potential is equally distributed across lines of race and class, but in America today, opportunity is not. Teach For America is working to realize the day when every child has an equal opportunity to learn, grow, influence, and lead.
Meaningful, sustainable systems change requires the focus of leaders who are rooted in their local culture, who are familiar with the challenges and opportunities, and who believe in the potential of all children.
Teach For America is a community of change makers and coalition-builders. Leaders who teach, and teachers who lead. From classrooms to districts to state houses across America, we’re reimagining education to realize the day when every child has an equal opportunity to learn, grow, influence and lead.
Teach For America finds, develops, and supports a diverse network of leaders, working together to end educational inequity. Our alumni, corp members, and staff work in schools and in every sector and field that helps shape educational opportunity in America. The TFA community is bound by a set of Core Values and a shared commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness we envision for our country.
Teach For America is a diverse network of leaders working to confront educational inequity through teaching and at every sector of society to create a country free from this injustice. Together, we are driving impact across the country to achieve our vision that one day all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
