Description of Scale and Reach
International Growth | Teach For All is working to accelerate the international impact of the similar approaches to expanding educational opportunity pioneered by Teach For America and Teach First in the U.K. The network was launched at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, following an outpouring of interest from social entrepreneurs seeking support from Teach For America and Teach First to create similar organizations that would expand educational opportunity in their respective countries. These individuals were determined to address educational need in their contexts, and they believed that the approach would create powerful drivers for change in their communities. Since then, the network has grown to programs in more than 35 countries — reaching approximately 6 new countries annually. Over time, with Teach For America and Teach First, the network has collectively placed 65,000+ teaching participants, fielded 40,000+ alumni, and reached approximately 6 million students — typically those from the most disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. Teacher Recruitment and Development | Teach For All network organizations recruit and develop recent graduates and professionals of all academic disciplines and career interests to commit two years to teach in high-need classrooms and to become lifelong leaders for educational and social change. As Teach For All network organizations pursue this approach, they face challenges in building and scaling effective teaching and alumni forces, cultivating public and private sector support, and becoming strong and sustainable organizations. Because there are remarkable similarities in the nature of educational inequity from country to country, Teach For All has learned that solutions are sharable across borders. Teach For All provides a platform for partners to share solutions and navigate potential barriers. Teach For All aims to increase partner’s progress and accelerate their impact through direct support; facilitating connections; accessing global resources for the benefit of the whole; and contributing to the leadership development of staff, participants, and alumni.
