Network Partners

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.



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 from diverse academic disciplines and career interests, who demonstrate the capabilities to positively impact student learning and development and become long-term leaders able to effect transformational impact 
  • Training and developing so they build the skills, mindsets, and knowledge needed to maximize impact on student learning and development and grow as leaders working collectively for change
  • Placing participants as teachers as teachers for an initial two year commitment in areas of educational need, with full accountability for their classrooms
  • Accelerating the leadership of alumni by fostering connections amongst them and furthering their individual and collective impact as they work to ensure equity and opportunity for all children
  • Driving measurable impact in the short term on student learning and development and in the  long term through the development of leaders who will help ensure equity and opportunity for all children

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

  • Operating a non-profit enterprise committed to working at a national level, innovating and adapting the approach to the local context 
  • Maintaining 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 approach in the face of external change
  • Partnerships with the public and private sectors to ensure the teaching placements, funding, and supportive policy environment necessary to achieve  the shared mission and sustain impact over time
  • Ensuring representation and inclusiveness of diverse team members, participants, alumni, and supporters, with a focus on those who share the background of their students
