ASU Sun Devils have gone on to be Teach For America corps members in one of our 50 regions across the United States. Rather than shrug our shoulders, it’s time to roll up our sleeves. Everyone deserves a chance to be a Sun Devil. All children in this country deserve an education that gives them the opportunity to realize their fullest potential.
Today, fewer than 10 percent of kids from low-income communities graduate from college. By becoming part of Teach For America, you join remarkable people from all backgrounds and professions who rise to the challenge to do what is right for kids. As a corps member, you’ll teach for at least two years in a low-income community, where you’ll show students what’s possible when they work hard and dream big. And as your students thrive, you’ll grow in ways you never imagined.
This year, nearly 9,000 corps members teach in 52 regions across the country, while nearly 42,000 Teach For America alumni continue to work from inside and outside the field of education to make an excellent education a reality for all. Our Corps Members point to their two years in Teach For America as among the most impactful of their lives. As alumni, they go on to tackle the problem of educational inequity from every angle- the career educator, the Civil Rights attorney, the ed tech entrepreneur, the socially- conscious CEO. No matter what field you wish to pursue in the long-term, Teach For America can give you the foundation and network upon which to grow your career.
Let your job lead to your purpose. Change and be changed. Apply to the 2016 corps today.
