Teach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education. Just 8% of kids growing up in low-income communities graduate from college by the age of 24. Today, poverty limits educational opportunity - but it doesn't have to be that way. Teach For America is working to solve the problem by: enlisting committed individuals, investing leaders, and accelerating impact.

To find out more information about the application and the educational achievement gap, visit Teach For America's website: www.teachforamerica.org. Additionally, Teach For America has three students working on campus to work with students interested in applying. Feel free to contact them:
