Teach for America’s Detroit chapter features a diverse network of leaders who are dedicated to impacting low-income communities by confronting educational inequity. With more than 400 teachers, instructional coaches, deans, principals and district leaders, everyone shares the same goal of providing students from across the state with an education and opportunities beginning in the classroom. TFA recruits leaders to become corps members who commit to teaching for two years in a low-income community where they’re employed by local schools to expand opportunities for children. After two years, they become part of the TFA alumni network. While some continue teaching, others pursue different leadership roles in schools or launch careers in other fields that continue to shape educational access and opportunity. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, TFA Detroit leaders are getting creative with ways to help their community due to the obstruction of face-to-face learning. From helping students set up at-home internet access for virtual lessons to purchasing and delivering groceries to families in need, both leaders and students are continuing to adapt to different ways of offering and receiving support during the 2020-2021 academic year. TFA has chapters across the country.
