Why join us? The need for quality educators with a strong background in science, technology, engineering and/or math is urgent. Only 30% of 8th graders nationwide are proficient in science, and this number drops to 12% for students in low-income communities. In fact, these students have less than a 50% chance of being taught by a teacher who has even a minor in a math or science related field. This inequity has massive implications for the future of our nation, as the United States ranks 25th in math and 17th in science among developed nations. You have the power to change this. Teach For America enlists a diverse corps of leaders who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong advocates in the effort to expand educational opportunity in and out of the classroom. Our corps members, who receive a full salary and benefits, use their numerous skills and experiences from their varied work, leadership, and academic backgrounds to effect change in their classroom and help break the cycle of inequity that prevents students from fulfilling their potential. Sign up here to learn more about our program, benefits, training, where and what you can teach, and the application timeline.

No education coursework or certification required: candidates of all professional backgrounds, academic majors, and career interests are encouraged to apply. A bachelor's degree is required.
