About Teach For America - Twin Cities
Our mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort. We recruit outstanding recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in Twin Cities schools and become lifelong leaders in pursuing educational excellence and equity. With extensive training and support, these corps members work relentlessly to ensure that students growing up today in low-income communities are given the educational opportunities they deserve. As alumni, they are a powerful force of leaders who act on the conviction and insight they gain from their teaching experience, working in education and all other sectors to effect the fundamental changes needed to ensure that all children have an equal chance in life.
Teach For America began placing corps members in the Twin Cities in 2009. In our charter year, 40 corps members taught in 11 schools, impacting approximately 2,200 low-income students. Since then, our corps has grown to include 92 teachers placed in 29 schools and impacting over 5,000 students. While the demand for corps members among our partner schools has grown, our ability to place corps members in Twin Cities schools is dependent on the financial support of individuals like you. Thank you for your support!
