Teach For America is growing the force of leaders committed to ensuring that all kids have an education that expands their opportunities and gives them more choices in life. Leadership through TFA begins in the classroom, where corps members spend at least two years in low-income communities teaching students and helping them reach their full potential. Through teaching, they develop the skills, mindsets, and relationships necessary to become lifelong advocates for students and join a nation-wide network of change-makers.
The 2015 Houston Institute Docu-Series follows six Corps Members through their Institute journey -- from induction to send-off. The series was created by the 2015 Houston Institute staff as a way to highlight incredible work, empowerment future leaders, and explore the narratives of Corps Members.
