The MIT Public Service Center and Teach For America ( TFA ) team up during MIT's winter break ( IAP ) to offer MIT students an exciting challenge. MIT students work with current Teach For America teachers and help them develop more innovative and exciting ways to teach science and math or work with a school district on data analysis or strategic planning. They gain first hand experience of what it's like to Teach For America. Students spend four weeks solving problems that matter, driving educational change and making a difference for kids.
MIT students interested in participating in this program or TFA Corps members interested in hosting an MIT student in their classroom during January should email 4forAmerica@mit.edu.
