Join us for an Information Session about Teach For America’s program, mission and impact. The event will cap off with a Q&A with Alex Donovan, TFA’s Barnard rep and current Corps Members and Alumni.
Teach For America
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all backgrounds and academic majors who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and who become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand opportunity for children.
Teach For America corps members have an immediate impact in the lives of children growing up today; gain the insight, network, and credibility to effect long-term change; and position themselves for success regardless of the field they ultimately pursue.
Each year, Teach For America selects a cohort of individuals who demonstrate a solid record of achievement. These corps members undergo extensive training during summer institutes, are placed as full-time, paid teachers in urban and rural public schools, and join an ongoing support network that helps them succeed during their two years as teachers and beyond.
