National Organizations

Teach For All network partners are independent organizations that share a common 
mission and model and a commitment to shared core values when working together across borders. Classrooms, schools, communities, and countries are only as strong as their leaders. Our partners are galvanizing their nations’ most promising future leaders in an effort to ensure more children receive the excellent education all kids deserve. Each program recruits and develops leaders of all academic disciplines to commit two years to teach in high-need classrooms and to work throughout their lives, both within and outside of education, to expand opportunity for children. Learn about the leaders of our national organizations.

UNIFYING PRINCIPLES

Teach For All partners commit to the
following five programmatic principles:

  • Recruiting and selecting as many as possible of the country's most promising future leaders of all academic disciplines and career interests who demonstrate the core competencies to positively impact student achievement and become long-term leaders able to effect systemic change
     
  • Training and developing participants so they build the skills, mindsets, and knowledge needed to maximize impact on student achievement
     
  • Placing participants as teachers for two years in regular beginning teaching positions in areas of educational need, with clear accountability for their classrooms
     
  • Accelerating the leadership of alumni by fostering the network between them and creating clear and compelling paths to leadership for expanding educational opportunity
     
  • Driving measurable impact in the short run on student achievement and long term on the development of leaders who will help ensure educational opportunity for all

Partners also share three common organizational design features 
that are critical to the success of our model and mission:

  • A local social enterprise that adapts the model thoughtfully to the national context, innovates and increases impact over time, and possesses the mission-driven leadership and organizational capacity necessary to achieve ambitious goals despite constraints
     
  • Independence from the control of government and other external entities, with an autonomous Board, a diversified funding base, and the freedom to make operational decisions, challenge traditional paradigms, and sustain the model in the face of political changes
     
  • Partnerships with the public and private sectors that provide the teaching placements, funding, and supportive policy environment necessary to achieve scale and sustain impact over time, while increasing accountability for results
