    Pros

    Offers a great jumpstart to college students looking to gain incredible professional and life experience. After the corps TFA offers plenty of paths to advance in education as a teacher or administrator; or at the company as an employee; or through graduate school programs and other professional opportunities.

    Cons

    REALLY HARD to be first-year teacher in an urban environment...not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Consider focusing solely on grooming career teachers as the organization matures.

  2. A transformational Experience that is based on the individual not the organization
