Teach For America Washington

Since 2011, Teach For America Washington has worked to achieve educational equity alongside a growing number of schools and community partners. We believe that the vast potential of Washington students is evenly distributed across lines of race and class, but their access to opportunity is not. Students of color and those in poverty-impacted communities face disproportionate challenges, so Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of outstanding leaders who commit at least two years to teach in some of our state’s highest need schools. Our corps members become lifelong advocates for Washington’s most underserved children, pursuing a range of leadership paths to positively impact outcomes for children across a variety of sectors. Today, our alumni network is more than 1,000 strong statewide, including more than 400 classroom teachers and 40 school leaders and school system leaders.
