An EXCELLENT EDUCATION
We envision an education system in Armenia where all children, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, have the opportunity to unlock their full potential though an excellent education.
Today, thousands of children growing up in economically underserved communities acros our countr do not have the access to the high-quality teaching and educational opportunities that are readily available to their wealthier peers. As a result, tens of thousands of Armenian children are being left without the skills they need to pursue higher education and attain financial security.
We have made it our mission to expand educational opportunity for all children by recruiting and training exceptional individuals from Armenia and the Armenian diaspora to teach in our country's underserved schools for a minimum term of two years. By recruiting and training Fellows to teach in underserved schools, we aim to improve educational opportunities for our most underprivileged children while facilitating a generation of Armenian leaders who will work throughout their lives to ensure that our education system affords a high quality education to all children.
We know that expanded educational opportunity will help to create a more prosperous and sustainable nation where all children in our country can thrive and become informed, contributing Armenian citizens with strong prospects for the future.
If this vision resonates with you, we urge you to join our movement and be on the forefront of social change in Armenia!
The Teach For Armenia Fellowship is a two-year program for Armenia’s top talent to unlock their professional and leadership potential through teaching in an underserved public school. Teach For Armenia Fellows are placed as regular public school teachers to teach core subjects according to state mandated curriculum. Our Fellows go above and beyond to inspire, motivate, and set all of their students on a transformational path towards educational opportunity.
By creating a new generation of committed young leaders unified in a common experience, we are not only impacting the life trajectory of thousands of students by giving them access to an education they would otherwise be unable to gain due to their financial or geographic status, but are also facilitating a generation of passionate education ambassadors who will work throughout their lives to ensure all students in Armenia have access to an excellent education.
Our Fellows teach across all grade levels, subjects, and in adherence to state-mandated curriculum, but according to a pioneering, twenty-five-year-old global teaching model called Teaching As Leadership, which is built upon the teacher’s understanding of the needs and possibilities of each student. Our teachers are not only intelligent, but also dynamic and inspirational. Their success in the classroom sets new standards of education excellence across their schools.
Teach For Armenia serves both the short-term objective and the long-term vision. We seek to impact classrooms and schools now, but also to create a network of education advocates for generations to come.
