Create a movement of lifelong leaders working from within various sectors to eliminate educational inequity in the country.
Teach For India Fellowship Programme is a five part model: 1. Talent Sourcing: Teach For India recruits the highest-quality university graduates and young professionals, who drive impact on student achievement and become life-long leaders able to effect systemic change.
2. Talent Development: Teach For India provides participants with rigorous training and professional development. Training begins with an intensive five-week residential course, led by international experts, and continues with weekly trainings and support from mentor teachers, throughout the two years.
3. Talent Placement: Teach For India places participants for two years in full-time teaching positions, with clear accountability for their classrooms, in areas with educational inequality where impact on student achievement will be maximized.
4. Alumni Support: Teach For India provides support that streamlines and clarifies paths to leadership, in order to eliminate educational inequality.
5. Measurable Impact: Teach For India works to drive measurable short-term impact on student achievement and foster long-term development of leaders who will help eliminate educational inequality. Teach For India assesses impact on student achievement, the school and community, and on the Fellows themselves.
