Teach For India is a nationwide movement of outstanding college graduates and young professionals who will commit two-years to teach full-time in under-resourced schools. The programme seeks to mould them into becoming lifelong leaders working from various sectors, pursuing equity in education.
And, teaching means serious business. Teach For India selects its Fellows through a rigorous interview process, to make sure only the most capable and passionate youngsters join the brigade of teachers. Now, the Fellowship programme is to be launched in Chennai. In Chennai, nearly 75 Fellows will get an opportunity to work in 30 under-resourced schools. “It will be a great learning opportunity for us, too. To be able to teach a concept and make a child understand can be immensely satisfying,” says Mr. Swaminathan.
The deadline for interested persons to apply is December 11. For details, visit
