Partnership with Teach for America
Omicron Delta Kappa is excited to announce a one year partnership with Teach for America to help connect local Circles with local Teach for America recruiters.
Teach For America recruits a diverse group of leaders with a record of achievement who work to expand educational opportunity in low income communities, starting by teaching for two years in a low-income community. Teach For America provides intensive training, support, and career development that helps these leaders increase their impact and deepen their understanding of what it takes to close the academic achievement gap. Teach For America fosters a growing movement of leaders, now 33,000 strong, who work at every level of education, policy, and other professions, to ensure that all children can receive an excellent education.
