Teach For India Alumni Programs

The essence of Teach for India’s work is truly accentuated when talked about in terms of enabling systemic change in the Education Sector. To that end, the Teach For India Alumni Program with its innovative initiatives, strives tirelessly to attain the recognition and influence that is needed to propel change in the education ecosystem of our country. As of now, Teach for India has 2500 Alumni mapped to the length and breadth of our country, which surpasses the number of Fellows currently in the circuit. This brings us to discerning the kind of potential that this movement possesses and the heights it can reach in the presence of a favourable framework of support.

The same potential of the movement is now being funnelled into fulfilling the Phase 3 vision of Teach for India, which is to impact a total of 1 million students by the end of 2023.

To cater to the aforementioned, we at Teach for India, have curated a talent incubator, the only one of its kind, which cobbles together 3 broad puzzle pieces wherein each of them contributes uniquely in catalyzing the impact made by our passionate Alumni.

The 3 facets that are seeded into the incubator initiative, along with their priority in terms of cities of operation are listed below:

1.School Leadership -

The cardinal reason behind incorporating this program into the incubator was to lower the entry barrier for individuals for attaining roles of influence in the education ecosystem. This was facilitated by introducing Assistant School Leaders into school level administration, to collaborate with the concerned stakeholders and work towards materialising the idea of an excellent education in the prevailing context of the situation. After making an impact on 12,000 students in the past year by placing 30 ASLs in low-income government & private schools, a total of 43 Alumni have been placed across our 7 cities in the current year, with the hopes of outperforming our own achievements.

2.  Community Aggregator

Another crucial area of intervention is community development. As much as something as holistic as community welfare needs to be worked towards in unison, it still needs a kingpin, an effective leader at the heart of its execution. Keeping this narrative in mind, Teach for India introduces a 2 year long community-specific Aggregator program wherein, a skilled Alumni spearheads operations related to improving the learning levels of students, encouraging community engagement and other crucial supplementary operations like Teacher training & parent investment through a grassroot level intervention approach.

3.  Policy Incubator

This programme is intended to funnel the graduating Fellows and existing Alumni into positions of influence in the field of educational policy within the government. Teach For India believes that a partnership in the form of sharing our biggest resource (Talent) will forge a strong two way partnership intended to shift policy in Education. The Project Associate in this regard, is a highly aspirational role where the scope to create impact at a systemic level is immense. The individual chosen as a Project associate functions as a key systems leader and plays a crucial role in the planning and execution process pertaining to facilitating systemic change at a public policy level.

 

Encompassing these highly ambitious projects in its purview, the Alumni movement is an enabler for concretising not just classroom impact but also for fueling lasting progress across all the levels in the education ecosystem of our country.
