Teach For America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level in our educational system toward the goal of closing the opportunity gap in America. These leaders start their paths as corps members who teach for two years in urban and rural high-need communities and help students make the academic progress that expands their opportunities. Deeply affected by their teaching experience, our alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields.
”Through my experience in TFA, I have been challenged in ways like never before in my life, but I have been able to persevere because of 30 smiling faces every morning that remind me of the importance and beauty of this work.”
-Courtney McGonegle (UW Foster School of Business, 2013)
