Teach for India is an organisation aimed towards eliminating educational inequality in India by building a nationwide movement of outstanding college graduates and professionals who will commit two-years to teach full-time in under-resourced schools.
Fellows go through a rigorous selection process where they are evaluated for academic excellence, demonstrated leadership, a commitment to the community, critical thinking and perseverance, amongst other qualities. We believe that these core competencies are required to drive student achievement and to become life-long leaders who effect systemic change.
After the two years of the Fellowship, the Fellows are then inducted into our Alumni Movement. 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 realise educational opportunity for all.
