Teach For All Organization Chart

Teach For All’s global organization is comprised of more than 140 staff members representing close to 30 nationalities and based in over 20 countries. Our staff works collaboratively across teams and regions to accelerate and increase the impact of the Teach For All network.

Network Engagement

The Network Engagement team works to ensure that support, culture, and engagement are holistically strong across all regions and with network partners of at all stages of development. The regional teams are responsible for managing both prospective and current network partners’ day-to-day engagement with the global organization, ensuring that support and peer connectivity meet each organization’s needs according to local priorities and capacity.  The regional teams are Teach For All's primary means for providing support across all functional areas to accelerate the learning and impact of current and prospective network partners in each region. In its day-to-day operations, the Network Engagement team conducts site visits to provide direct in-person support, develops various virtual and in-person learning opportunities, facilitates peer-to-peer learning trips and experiences, and coordinates and streamlines direct support that prospective and current network partners receive via functional specialists.

Scale

The Scale team supports partners to build national movements of leaders and champions to ensure that all children attain an excellent education. Our team ensures partners have the recruitment and selection practices, national brands, and public and private sector partnerships to launch, scale and sustain their organizations. We work directly with partner staff to develop knowledge, create learning experiences, provide thought partnership and foster connections. 

The scale team is comprised of three mini-teams:

Recruitment, Selection, & Matriculation (RSM)

RSM specialists work with local staff of Teach For All’s partner organizations as they seek to build the strategies, relationships and systems to recruit and select participants who will join the effort to expand educational opportunity in their countries.

Development & Government Engagement (DGE)

DGE specialists work with local staff of Teach For All’s partner organizations as they seek to build the public and private partnerships (including funding, teaching placements, government partnerships) to launch and scale their organizations.

Marketing & Positioning (M&P)

The mission of the Marketing & Positioning Team is to empower partners with the tools, clarity and strategies they need to influence critical audiences and build the brand necessary to realize their vision.

Global Development

The Global Development (GD) team is responsible for inspiring a global community of supporters to invest in collective leadership to ensure that all children have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. We ensure Teach For All has the financial resources necessary to accomplish our theory of change through cultivating authentic, deep relationships with our supporters – with the aim of catalyzing a global constituency of champions who 1) advocate, 2) provide financial support, and 3) raise funds and visibility for the global organization as well as for network partners. We also support other teams within the global organization that are doing this work, working particularly closely with the Regional Teams (generating regional sources of funding) and Multilateral and Government Partnerships teams (generating multilateral and government sources of funding), by providing the central development resources and support they need.

Technology

 The Technology team provides two distinct technology services to support, grow, and transform our organization’s ability to achieve its mission:

  • Strategic
    We build long-term trusted partnerships with our strategic partners throughout the organization to develop a deep understanding of their needs and provide total technology solutions. This generally requires identifying and customizing external products, though at times we may build in-house software solutions to deliver the best outcomes for our business partners.
  • Utility
    We maintain organizational IT infrastructure, provide technical support to our staff, and manage commercial off-the-shelf systems to ensure that the organization runs smoothly (e.g. cloud, laptops, mobile, storage, network, security, end-user software)

In order to achieve our goals, we are adopting an agile mindset and practices using lean start-up principles.
