National Teaching Programs
Teach For America
Teach For America recruits outstanding and diverse leaders to become TFA “corps members.” Corps members commit to teaching for two years in a low-income community, where they’re employed by local schools and confront both the challenges and joys of expanding opportunities for kids.
TFA Native American Teachers
Teach For America (TFA) is continuing its campaign to recruit recent teacher education graduates from tribal colleges and universities. The organization’s Native Alliance Initiative is celebrating five years of working in partnership with tribal communities in an effort to provide effective teachers, advance student achievement, and increase opportunities through culturally responsive teaching.
AmeriCorps, a federal agency, brings people together to tackle the country’s most pressing challenges through national service and volunteering. AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers serve with organizations dedicated to the improvement of communities. AmeriCorps helps make service to others a cornerstone of our national culture.
