Teach For All is an expanding network of more than 40 organizations. They span the globe, representing enormous culture diversity. What unifies them is a determination to end educational inequity. They recruit and train recent college graduates and professionals from diverse academic disciplines to work in high-needs schools for at least two years.
If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, it would lift 171 million people out of poverty. Studies like this show how much the world has to gain from eradicating educational inequity. Realistically, there’s no single solution to such a complex problem. But Teach For All believes the single most important requirement is leadership.
Networking is not a core competency of Teach For All, and many of its participating partners work in remote locations with no dedicated IT staff. Cisco product donations are the basis for a global telecommunications network, enabling partners, teachers, and alumni to share ideas and best practices.
900,000 students in high-needs schools reached in past year
14,000 teachers in 44 countries recruited and trained in past year
65% of alumni continue to work in education or community organizations
“Our vision is for students to become conscious and empowered individuals who can use their educated voice to advocate for themselves, their family, and their community.”Wizdom Amouzou, Teacher, Teach For America
