Teach For America - Memphis

Building a force of leaders to end educational inequity

Fight Injustice

Education should be a universal right, not a privilege.

Nearly 50 years after Dr. King gave his life here in the fight for equality, only 4 percent of kids in our city graduate high school ready for college. Only 26 percent of residents in the Memphis Metropolitan Area hold a bachelor’s degree. We are not living up to the legacy left to us by civil rights leaders when a quality education is still a privilege in our region and not a right.

How We're Making a Difference

Memphis is so fortunate to have so many alumni working to do incredible things for kids in Memphis. Something special is happening here in our city, and that is why nearly 300 alumni and counting have already chosen to make Memphis their home. Have an event, opportunity, or job you’d like to promote to our alumni network? Want to spread the word about something great one of our alumni has taken on in our city?
