Teach for America

The final deadline for applications for the Teach for America is quickly approaching. 

Teach for America is a national organization with the mission of eliminating educational inequality. Every year, Teach for America recruits a diverse group of leaders who work to extend educational opportunities to students from low-income communities by committing to two years of teaching in urban and rural public schools around the country. Ideally, the program seeks students with demonstrated academic achievement, strong critical-thinking skills, professionalism, organizational abilities, and excellent writing skills. In addition to professional training and educational awards toward the pursuit of graduate degrees, students receive a full-time salary commensurate with those at their host schools. 

In order to apply to Teach for America, students must meet all of the following criteria: 

-Hold a bachelor’s degree on or before the Summer 2012 training institute
-Have maintained a minimum GPA of 2.5/4.0
-Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident

Applications and further information are available at the program Website
