Teach For All supports and connects a global network of independent organizations working around the world to ensure that every child has access to an excellent education. Each organization in the network, conceived and launched by a local entrepreneur, enlists its nation’s most promising leaders to teach in high-need areas for two years, and, in the long-term, drive systemic changes from within and outside of the education sector.
Teach For All is catalyzing an international movement to expand educational opportunity. At the center of this network, Teach For All plays a unique role: it helps local organizations overcome common challenges by providing direct support services and serving as a hub for the exchange of best practices. In addition to delivering support to local organizations, Teach For All maximizes local impact on educational need by directly connecting the teaching participants and alumni of its international network programs through conferences and online forums.
Started in 2007 in response to requests from social entrepreneurs worldwide who were seeking to adapt Teach For America and Teach First (UK)’s successful model to their countries, Teach For All today fosters a global community of almost 12,000 teachers and more than 25,000 alumni. Based on growing demand, the network expects to expand to more than 40 countries by 2015
In 2040, communities in every part of the world are enabling all of their children to have the education, support, and opportunity to shape a better future for themselves and all of us. These communities are inspiring and informing a worldwide movement to achieve this everywhere.
