About the D.C. Region


While this gap remains a significant barrier to the future opportunities available to our kids, we are beginning to see inspiring evidence of change. Our alumni and corps members are working diligently alongside the community to improve the life trajectories of children in the District and Prince George’s County. Right now, there are 155 corps members in the Teach For America–D.C. Region, instructing nearly 10,000 students within the beltway. At this scale, nearly one in six low-income students in the region is taught by a TFA corps member. Many alumni remain committed to our mission as well, including 80 principals, assistant principals and deans. With more than 2,600 alumni in the region, Teach For America is fueling the local ecosystem of teachers, school leaders, and community leaders needed to accelerate and sustain the pace of education reform.
