    Arizona State Information

    Arizona Department of Education
    Today in the United States, only 8% of students growing up in low-income communities graduate from college, compared to 80% of students from high-income communities. Our country is systematically failing to educate the 16 million children growing up in poverty – but you have the power to change this. Teach For America enlists a diverse corps of leaders who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools (in 46 regions across the country) and become lifelong advocates in the effort to expand educational opportunity. Two year commitment. Full salary and benefits.

    All veteran servicemen/women are encouraged to apply.
