Challenging, life-changing, rewarding experience

Corps Member (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsA huge challenge. I will force you to grow and develop in so many ways. You are immediately put on the front lines of fighting the achievement gap in public education. Great professional development and networking opportunities, great support staff, very supportive alumni network.

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