Business details

The short term theory of change includes the Fellowship - Teach For India recruits India's most promising college graduates and high performing young professionals to serve as full-time teachers in low-income schools for two years. Fellows work tirelessly to bridge the immense gaps their children face, putting their students on a fundamentally different life path. Through the Teaching as Leadership framework, Teach For India staff provide training and support to Fellows so that they can employ innovative teaching strategies to maximize their effectiveness in the classroom. The long term theory of change includes the Alumni Movement - After two years of the Fellowship, the Fellows are then inducted into our Alumni Movement. The Alumni are the forerunners of our movement and are instrumental in helping us reach our vision. The Alumni are a powerful and growing leadership force. Informed by their experiences and insights, the Alumni Movement works from inside and outside the educational system to effect the fundamental, long-term changes necessary to ultimately realize educational opportunity for all.
