About Teach For All

Teach For All is a global network of 60 independent, national partner organizations and a global organization committed to developing collective leadership to ensure all children fulfill their potential. Each network partner recruits and develops promising leaders over diverse academic backgrounds to teach in their nations’ under-resourced schools and communities and, with this foundation, to work with others, inside and outside of education, to ensure all children have the education, support and opportunity to shape a better future for themselves and all of us. Teach For All’s global organization works to increase the network’s impact by fostering commitment to our shared purpose, values, vision, unifying principles and standards; supporting the development of new organizations; fostering collective learning; providing coaching and consulting; contributing to the leadership development of partner staff, teachers and alumnip and enabling access to global resources.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusiveness

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive organization that inspires individuals of all backgrounds – across nationalities, races, ethnicity, religions, political views, economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, physical disabilities, languages, ages, genders and prior experiences – to bring their full selves to the work of ensuring educational opportunity for all.

In order to maximize our effectiveness in fulfilling Teach For All’s mission, we also feel it is important to focus on increasing representation and inclusiveness with respect to two dimensions in particular: we prioritize diversity of geography because this can help us quickly understand and connect with the diverse cultures and geographies of the world. We also prioritize increasing the representation and inclusiveness of team members who themselves have experienced the inequities we’re working to address and share the background (e.g. economic, racial and ethnic, religious) of the most disadvantaged groups in their countries.
