The Teach For Armenia Fellowship is a 2 year teaching program for Armenia’s top talent to unlock their professional and leadership potential while at the same time give back to Armenian communities in need. Teach For Armenia Fellows are placed in the most underserved schools in regional Armenia. Our partner schools need young teachers to inspire innovation, new teaching methods, and access to the latest educational resources.
Teach For Armenia envisions creating a community of like-minded leaders who thoroughly understand the Armenian educational system in its complexity. These leaders are able to contribute to its continued development and modernization across career paths upon completion of the Fellowship.
Teach For Armenia is rooted in a global model, called Teach for All. This 25-year-old social change model is successfully implemented and localized in 40 countries worldwide. National independent organizations who implement the programs locally are brought together by Teach For All’s international network to create a platform for best practice and knowledge sharing.
