Today in Armenia, tens of thousands of Armenian children are being left without the skills they need to pursue higher education and attain financial security. Children in the communities Teach For Armenia serves lack access to the high-quality teaching and educational opportunities that are readily available to their wealthier peers; and an estimated 40% of schools in these communities face severe teacher shortages. To address this crucial issue, Teach For Armenia harnesses the energy, enthusiasm, and drive of exceptional university graduates to infuse great teachers into Armenia’s most disadvantaged schools and to cultivate lifelong champions for educational excellence. The process is simple, the best and brightest of Armenia are recruited. They are trained to become transformational leaders; they are then placed in schools as Teach For Armenia Fellows serving low-income communities. Teach For Armenia invests heavily in supporting these Fellows so that they succeed with their students and gain the knowledge and mindsets necessary for long-term leadership.
