About Greater Philadelphia

Our life long vision is for students in every community in Greater Philadelphia, especially the 60,000 living in deep poverty, to have access to schools that honor, cultivate and promote their inherent potential. To ensure that our students will be prepared for tomorrow’s challenges, we know schools and the communities they serve, need teachers, principals and leaders who are fueled by educational equity.

Teach for America’s corps members, teachers, and alumni work with students to achieve daily positive impact. We believe that with a diverse perspective and approach in our programs, we will all find meaningful ways to serve, lead or partner to improve life opportunities for our city’s students.
