Teach For America works in partnership with communities to expand
educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty.
Founded in 1990, Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of
outstanding college graduates and professionals to make an initial two-year
commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the
movement to end educational inequity. In Eastern North Carolina, roughly
1000 Teach For America leaders work as teachers, principals, district
leaders, nonprofit professionals, government and community leaders, and
innovators in the private sector.
