Teach For America

FINAL Application Deadline: Friday, February 10th
In this country today, the zip code you are born in has more to do with your life prospects than your capability or ambition.  Of the 16.4 million children living in poverty only 50% graduate from high school; on average those graduates read on an 8th grade level.  Make an impact.  Expand opportunities for the next generation.  Start by teaching for two years in a low-income community and help unlock your students’ full potential.  Take the first step to join the thousands of others working to combat this inequality by submitting a resume and a 500 word letter of intent at our February 10th deadline.  We are open to all academic majors and career interests.

Benefits include:
·        Full salary and benefits
·        Forbearance and no-interest options on student loans for two years
·        Receive an AmeriCorps Education Award totaling $10,700
·        Graduate school and employer partnerships (deferrals, scholarships, etc)
