Job Description

* Upcoming Deadline: Friday, February 1st, 2019.

Who We Are

Teach For America (TFA) is a leadership development organization focused on the systemic challenges facing children growing up in poverty. While potential is equally distributed across lines of race and class, opportunity is not, and we seek to correct this injustice. We recruit, train, and support talented and ambitious leaders from all career backgrounds and academic majors to teach in high-need communities across the US.

No matter your background or professional experience-whether you're looking for a new job opportunity or a professional considering a career change-we believe that your unique experience and skills can play a vital role in ensuring that kids in low-income communities across the nation receive a quality education.

Who You Are

Joining Teach For America is a great fit if:

* You have a deep-seated belief that every child in America should have access to an excellent education and equal opportunity to learn and grow, regardless of race, ethnicity, location, or socio-economic background.
* You have a desire to build stronger communities and empower future generations.
* You have proven leadership experience and a history of achievement.
* You are hungry for a job where you can make a difference and help create enduring change.

What You'll Do

As a Teach For America corps member, you'll be a full-time teacher for two years at the preschool, kindergarten, elementary, middle, or high school level, with the opportunity to lead real change and make a deep impact on your students and the community that you serve.

Teach For America corps members teach a variety of subjects, including (but not limited to): science, math, computer science, humanities, language arts, English, reading, special education, Spanish/bilingual education, ESL, history, social studies, and more.

You'll work in close partnership with educators, parents, and community members to set ambitious goals for your students and help support them on their journey to achieving their dreams. With an unparalleled support network, ongoing coaching and leadership development during your two years in the corps, you will have a profound impact on your students' academic and personal growth.

As a TFA alum, you will gain access to numerous top graduate school and employer partnerships that will help you advance and accelerate your leadership trajectory after you leave the corps. While many alumni choose to continue teaching after their two year commitment, others choose to branch out across a variety of sectors-law, non-profit, finance, government, and more-while continuing to help impact and advance educational equity throughout their careers. We need educators, engineers, policy advocates, military veterans, attorneys, marketers, developers, social workers, all equally working together as a coalition to bring about systemic change in our nation's education system.

Where You Will Teach

Teach For America works in 51 communities across the country. We call them "regions," and they range from large cities to rural communities, from New Haven to Hawai'i and South Dakota to the Rio Grande Valley, TFA corps members are challenging what is possible for our nation's students.

Minimum Qualifications

* Strong academic performance: Minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher.
* Bachelor's degree by June 2019 or earlier
* Must be a citizen, national, or legal resident of the United States or have DACA status.

Upcoming Application Deadline

Please submit your completed application before the upcoming deadline date: 2/1/19
