Teach For America is building the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising future leaders in the effort. Teach For America provides well-trained teachers, called corps members, who commit to teach for two years in communities like Baton Rouge in South Louisiana, one of 39 urban and rural regions across the country. Corps members go above and beyond traditional expectations to help their students to achieve at high levels. With your help, we can provide critical talent and energy to help fuel this effort and give all children in this nation the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
