Teach For America


Teach For America is a national teacher corps of college graduates and professionals who commit to teach for two years and raise student achievement in public schools. TFA recruits recent college graduates and professionals to teach for two years in urban and rural communities throughout the United States. The goal of TFA is for its corps members to make both a short-term and long-term impact by leading their students to reach their full potential and becoming lifelong leaders for educational equity. Corps members do not have to be certified teachers, although certified teachers may apply. Unlicensed/uncertified corps members receive alternative certification through coursework taken while completing the program. Corps members attend an intensive five-week summer training program to prepare for their commitment.

GLAAZ has a partnership with TFA to place new corps members in the school for at least two years. To learn more about TFA, visit the official website.
