About Teach For Armenia Educational Foundation
Teach For Armenia is an independent, not-for- profit organization that is enlisting Armenia’s most
promising future leaders in our mission to ensure all children in Armenia have access to an
excellent education. Participants in the program, known as Fellows, serve as full-time teachers
for two years in high-need schools across Armenia, and commit to transforming the education
outcomes of less-privileged schoolchildren through significantly improving their achievements,
affect and access. In the long term, Teach For Armenia Alumni will form a different class of
leaders, working in various sectors to expand educational opportunity for all children in Armenia.
To date, Teach For Armenia has recruited 85 Fellows across 3 cohorts. We aim to grow this
number aggressively given the scale and urgency of education inequity.

Ministry of Education, other education stakeholders, as well as other like-minded individuals
