Incredible.

Operations Coordinator (Current Employee)
Cleveland, MS

ProsThe culture of the staff is very uplifting and relational. Makes it all worth it! Institute is an event that challenges you, but builds your knowledge, skills, abilities, as well as relationships. It is a once in a life time opportunity to see a behind the scenes aspect of Teach for America working toward their mission.

ConsYou will likely be working long hours in order to reach goals; however, TFA emphasizes only working in working hours as they stress balance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
