Teach For All is a global network of 53+ independent, locally led and governed partner organizations and a global organization that works to accelerate the progress of the network. Each network partner recruits and develops promising future leaders to teach in their nations’ under-resourced schools and communities and, to work with others, inside and outside of education, to ensure that all children are able to fulfill their potential. Teach For All’s global organization works to increase the network’s impact by capturing and spreading learning, facilitating connections among partners, accessing global resources, and fostering the leadership development of partner staff, teachers, and alumni.

Why We Invested

System change in education does not happen without change leaders—be it teachers, administrators, entrepreneurs, or policy makers. Yet around the world, there is a shortage of these leaders, particularly of leaders connected to the community and invested in addressing issues related to educational inequity. Teach For All supports the development of independent, locally led national organizations in over 53 countries that are working to channel the energies of a generation of leaders towards ensuring that all children can fulfill their potential.

It is such a privilege to be part of a diverse, global network focused on developing local leadership to ensure that all children have the education, support, and opportunity to shape a better future. This work is so central to meeting all of our aspirations-- for peace, sustainability, and inclusiveness.
