In America, zip code determines one’s life outcomes. Kids growing up in poverty are more likely to call a prison bed home than their college dorm room. The color of a child’s skin or the size of a child’s parent’s paycheck should not determine his or her destiny. Teach For America is your opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of students and families to change this fact. Our students need us now, more than ever. The application is designed to be a minimal initial investment of 2-3 hours; even if you are still exploring post-graduate options, also consider submitting your Teach For America application. This is the last chance to apply this school year for an opportunity to serve as a classroom teacher immediately after graduation. Application requirements are simply:  Resume, 500 word Letter of Intent, No letters of recommendation to apply
