Teach for America will Change Recruitment Strategy

by admin on 7th-May-2016

Teach for America is a nonprofit organization that seeks to enlist, develop and mobilize as many of the nation’s most promising college graduates. Participants commit to teach for at least two years in a public school or public charter K–12 school in one of the 52 low-income communities served by the organization nationally—including schools in the Inland Empire. After three years of declining applications the Teach for America program has vowed to change its recruitment strategy by working with college students earlier in their college careers, possibly beginning outreach efforts as early as a student’s sophomore year. Although applications for 2016 were once again much lower than anticipated, the good news is at least 50 percent of 2016 applicants are people of color.
