Teach for America: Apply for the 2016 Corps Today


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.

The next application deadlines are Thursday, September 10th and Friday, October 30th. To learn more, visit www.teachforamerica.org or, if you are an Arizona State University student, contact Teach for America’s campus representative directly at Veronica.Aguilar@teachforamerica.org.

Guest Article: Spotlight on Kelly Vo, by Asonta Benetti

Kelly Vo.

Superstition Review student intern Asonta Benetti interviewed past intern Kelly Vo to see how she was impacted by her experiences with SR:

“It really was not a planned internship,” Kelly Vo remembers, “but I know that without the amazing experiences I had at Superstition Review, I wouldn’t be as prepared for the next steps of my life.” Vo started with SR in Spring 2008, helping kick off the premier issue by holding down the Fiction Editor position with another colleague. “I didn’t know how much work and time went into getting an online magazine off the ground and running,” she recollects. “Creating a new magazine is a huge project and I know that it would not have turned into such a wonderful magazine if it wasn’t for the fact that we all collaborated and worked together to make a great product.”

Vo is currently an intern at E.B. Lane Publishing, working in the advertising Account Management sector. She plans to graduate this coming December and has applied to join Teach for America. “I very much enjoyed being an intern for Superstition Review. It was an amazing experience. I had never worked on a magazine before and I never really thought it would be something that I would enjoy but it ended up being a blast.”
