Teach For America works in partnership with communities to expand educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty. Founded in 1990, Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of outstanding college graduates and professionals to make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the movement to end educational inequity. Today, 9,000 corps members are teaching in 53 urban and rural regions across the country while more than 53,000 alumni work across all sectors to ensure that all children have access to an excellent education.
