Why Join

Education is the most powerful lever we have to create a more just world. And it starts with individual kids, classrooms, and communities. 

As a teacher, you’ll have a meaningful impact with kids right away. Over time, you will build relationships that change you, find a community, and gain skills that transfer to leadership in any sector. 

With Teach For America, you’ll earn a living and live your values every day at work. Check out some of the financial and career benefits corps members receive.

Choose Your Location

The students you teach are loved and shaped by the communities where they live. Successful teachers become part of those communities with kids, their families, and neighbors. The place you teach, whether it’s where you grew up or somewhere new, becomes your home.

Final Deadline to apply: February 5, 2024.
