ABOUT THE TEACH FOR INDIA FELLOWSHIP

The Teach For India Fellowship program is an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising individuals , from the nation’s best universities and workplaces, to serve as full-time teachers to children from underserved communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools. Through this experience of teaching in classrooms and working with key education stakeholders like students, principals and parents, our Fellows get exposed to the grassroot realities of India’s education system and begin to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to attain positions of leadership in education and identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country. Our Fellows transform the life paths of children in their classroom, and in turn, transform themselves towards leadership in educational equity. Our Fellows are placed as full-time teachers, for 2 years, in government or low-income private schools. They teach English, Mathematics, Science and Social Students, in English, across Grades 1 to 10. Teach For India Fellows teach in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.

Our Fellows must possess skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, grit and have a high bar of expectations for themselves and others. They must demonstrate interpersonal skills through their interactions with various stakeholders, along with academic excellence.

In our Fellows, we look for leaders to join a movement towards educational equity. Aside from passion and commitment to the movement, we look for leadership potential that can develop through the two-year Fellowship.
