JET Alumni Invited to Apply to Teach For America

Note:  The below announcement resulted from a discussion between JETAA USA Board of Advisors member Jessyca Livingston (Hokkaido, 2003-06) and Christie Clark of Teach For America after they realized there have been a significant number of JETs who have done TFA and vice-versa.  (e.g., It turns out that current AJET Chair Mark Noizumi is a TFA alum.)  TFA has had good experience with JET alumni who go on to work for TFA, and the JET Programme certainly appreciates applicants who come with the kind of prior teaching experience that TFA alums have.  Stay tuned for more info as JETAA seeks to grow its relationship with TFA.


Only 1 in 13 students from low-income communities will graduate from college. You can use your experience in education to be a part of a movement to change this.  Join fellow corps members– from all professional and academic backgrounds – in the fight to ensure ALL students have a chance at the American Dream.

Teach For America enlists a diverse corps of leaders who commit to teach for at least two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong advocates in the effort to expand educational opportunity. Our teachers use their numerous skills and experiences from their varied work, leadership, and academic backgrounds to effect change in their classroom and help break the cycle of inequity that prevents students from fulfilling their potential. Full salary, benefits, transitional grants, and Americorps funding.

Sign up here to apply. The final application deadline for the 2013 corps is Friday, February 15th.
