Since 2010, Teach For America has been working to cultivate leaders for Rhode Island. As a result, more than 150 alumni are living and working in our state—74 percent directly in education or in a field that impacts education.
With our recruitment efforts, our region is also supporting the Rhode Island Department of Education's goal of developing a more diverse group of excellent teachers and school leaders. We know that when students can identify with their teacher’s background, they can tangibly envision their own leadership and success.
Through continued partnership, we aim to ensure that students in Rhode Island's highest-need schools have equal access to the educational opportunities necessary to compete in and grow our state's economy and overall future.
