Teach For Armenia began in 2013 with an ambitious mission to transform Armenia’s public education system. Due to countless historic and political events throughout our history, the education system has become outdated, fragmented, and underfunded. Today, our children are being left behind without the skills, knowledge, and experience they need to determine the course of their future.
Through teacher leadership, we help to ensure that educational excellence and opportunity will reach every child. Our organization has consistently exceeded expectations in impact and inﬂuence. Expanded and replicated nationwide, this movement has the tremendous power to transform not only the education system in Armenia but the development of the country as a whole.
We envision an Armenia where all children, regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances, have the opportunity to unlock their full potential through an excellent education.
Our mission is to catalyze a nationwide movement of impact-driven leaders expanding educational opportunity to all children in Armenia.
Striving for Excellence
Our goal of ensuring that Armenia’s future generations’ educational dreams are a reality pushes us to effective action in the face of challenges to bring high-quality educators to the students and schools who need them.
Constant Learning & Growth
We are committed to learning from each other in the interest of maximizing our collective impact. We seek to learn from diverse perspectives and enable improvement based on those insights.
Dedication & Resilience
Our adaptability and desire for improvement drive us. We recognize that our impact can be great, and we approach challenges with dedication and commitment.
Integrity & Humility
Learning from our shared experiences within our Armenian history, we act strategically to implement the major goals of our organization. We use our resources wisely, considering the internal and external environments in which we work. We seek to help Armenia and its children unlock their potential.
When our students are 25 years old, their education will have enhanced their life circumstances and enabled them to provide for themselves and their families. They will have become advocates for a high-quality education for all children in Armenia and beyond. They will have become active citizens in their communities, embodying value and pride in the history and culture of their regions.
By developing and enhancing the opportunities available to upcoming generations, our students will be the transformation needed to shape Armenia’s future. Our students will be locally-rooted, globally-informed leaders, contributing to the systemic development of Armenia and her position in the changing global economy.
