Who We Are
About Our Corps Of Teachers
Teach For America recruits outstanding and diverse individuals who have demonstrated the values and leadership skills necessary to expand access and opportunity for students both inside and outside the classroom. Called “corps members,” these individuals make an initial commitment to teach for two years in a public school, partnering with children and families most impacted by educational inequity.
Together, we shape the conversation about what’s possible. From classrooms to districts to state houses across America, we’re reimagining education to realize the day when every child has an equal opportunity to learn, to grow, to influence and to lead. In every community where meaningful progress is being made in educational outcomes, TFA alumni and corps members are playing an essential role. Together with our students and all who support them, we strive for justice and opportunity for all.
From Our Executive Director
“Ending educational inequity in the Bay is both a moral and economic imperative for all of us. While we are proud of TFA’s role in driving change for students across the Bay, we know it’s only through our partnerships—with teachers, school and system leaders, policymakers and community members— that we’ll achieve the large-scale change our students deserve.”
