Teach For America

In Memory of Jim Foley

We mourn the loss of Jim Foley, who was not only a journalist committed to bringing to light the lives of those in need, but was also a member of the Teach For All community as an alumnus of Teach For America’s '96 corps in Phoenix, Arizona.

Through social media, there has been an outpouring of love for Jim that shows just how many lives he touched. Our hearts go out to Jim’s family and loved ones.
