About Teach for India
At Teach For India, we’ve built a nationwide movement of leaders who are working relentlessly to end inequity in education. It’s been twelve years since we began this journey and today we have 900+ Fellows leading classrooms impacting 32,000 children across the country, Through our Fellowship, we infuse the largest pipeline of driven, skilled talent into the educational ecosystem and have a growing movement of 3400+ Alumni. Our Alumni work at all levels of the education system from teaching, teacher training, school leadership and community empowerment to education technology, policy, governance, media as well as in the private sector. Cumulatively, our Alumni have founded 150+ organisations in the social sector with 200 of them occupying senior leadership and CXO positions across organisations.
77% of our Alumni continue to work in the development sector impacting 33 million, or 1 in 10 children across India, thereby demonstrating their commitment to our vision – One Day All Children Will Attain An Excellent Education. Collectively, these numbers represent the immense potential of our model and the power of our broader community – a potential to catalyze a movement for education reform and redefine what’s possible for children from the most vulnerable backgrounds. Our work will only be complete once we have built a movement of leaders large enough to ensure that every child in India is receiving an excellent education.
On Staff, we pride ourselves as being a passionate, idealistic, mission-driven team of 200+ individuals who are committed to the pursuit of excellence and practicing the values that shape us as people.. We have been recognised by Great Places To Work and are an equal opportunities employer, providing compensation and benefits at the top of the nonprofit sector.
