Teach For China, established in 2008, is enlisting the most promising young leaders from China to ensure that one day, every child enjoys access to a quality education--that every child will have the opportunity to dream and the skills to achieve those dreams--no matter where they are born.
We recruit outstanding Chinese college graduates and train them to serve as full-time teachers (“Fellows”) in under-resourced Chinese schools. Fellows spend two years working relentlessly in their classrooms to equip students with academic and life skills. They leave their Fellowship not only with invaluable professional and leadership experience but with a deep understanding of and commitment to solving China’s educational challenges. As alumni, they will form a force for change working to create an education system that equips all of China’s children for success. Since our founding seven years ago, more than 750 Teach For China Fellows have served in 170 high-need schools across China’s Yunnan and Guangdong provinces and impacted more than 240,000 students.
