Teach For America works in partnership with nearly 250 urban and rural communities across the country to expand educational opportunity for children. Founded in 1990, Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of outstanding leaders who make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to end educational inequity. Today, Teach For America is a force of 67,000 alumni and corps members working in more than 9,000 schools nationwide in pursuit of profound systemic change. From classrooms to districts to state houses across America, they are reimagining education to realize the day when every child has an equal opportunity to learn, lead, thrive, and co-create a future filled with possibility.

Over the past 30 years, Teach For America New York has introduced close to 6,000 promising leaders to New York City schools. With incoming corps sizes ranging from 100 to 500+, TFA corps members have helped to meet critical needs for diverse talent in hard-to-staff areas—special education, STEM, and early childhood education—in low-income neighborhoods that have difficulty attracting and retaining qualified teachers.
