Teach for America Currently Accepting Applications

Calling all juniors & seniors! Teach for America (TFA) is currently accepting applications for the 2016 corps until January 15th, 2016.

TFA is a national non-profit dedicated to changing the odds for the 16 million children born into poverty in the United States. We recruit diverse campus leaders from all majors to serve as teachers in low-income communities for a minimum of 2 years. Corps members are placed in all grades and subjects (PreK-12) in one of 52 regions across the country depending on qualification and preference. 

After 2 years, corps members become part of our 42,000 member-strong alumni network, and many pursue one of our many graduate school partnerships. This is a post-graduate opportunity, and all corps members receive a full teacher's salary & benefits as well as TWO AmeriCorps education grants worth over $10,000. More than 150 students at UMD have already applied to become part of the movement to end education inequity! Join them by going to www.teachforamerica.org or contacting your campus recruiter, Lauren Nurse, at lnursedbk@gmail.com.
