See below for our 4th deadline for seniors to apply to Teach For America and a paid summer internship opportunity for underclassmen!
Seniors: Over the holiday break, your family and friends will ask you, “What are you doing after you graduate?” Tell them “Teach For America,” because improving the equity of our education system is one of the most important things our generation can do. Today, 4th graders living at or below the poverty line are on average three full grade levels behind their wealthier peers and have an 8% likelihood of graduating from college. Be the change. Education Transforms.
Application requirements are simple, you could easily complete it in one day over the holiday break!:
