I am an international applicant. Am I eligible for a staff position?

Teach For America is committed to closing the gap on educational inequity, and therefore believes in recruiting and hiring the most qualified talent to support our mission. All staff applicants must be eligible for employment by U.S. standards and have a current U.S. address.

In addition to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, additional status types that we have a history of hiring are:

  • Individuals with temporary work authorization such as H-1Bs or TNs
  • F-1 student visa holders with optional practical training (OPT) periods
  • Those with other forms of work authorization
