Teach For America

“TFA is a diverse network of leaders who confront educational inequity through teaching and work with unwavering commitment from every sector of society to create a nation free from this injustice.”

About the organization: “Today in America, the circumstances of children’s births predict the opportunities they have in life.
Our public education system is not designed to give all students agency to overcome the barriers they face, to lead in a global world, or to shape a better future for themselves or for all of us.
At Teach For America, we know that no single solution is sufficient to bring about an equitable and excellent education for all children. Solving the problem requires leadership at every level, working together inside and outside of education, in pursuit of enduring change.”

FAQ: (from TFA) 9% of kids growing up in low-income communities will graduate from college by the time they are 25.

I am deeply passionate about this organization and have several friends that fight to help students achieve their dreams. This organization and all the people who work for it allow these children to have a better life and grow and make their dreams come true. There are future scientists, doctors, public health workers, presidents, the next Mozart out there and not being heard or helped! Help fund the efforts and if you are a leader or a teacher, and are in a city where they are located, WORK FOR THEM!
