Interested in a short term (2 years) service opportunity after graduation from JMU? Think you might like to teach? Look into Teach for America. A JMU student who is also a TFA campus representative asked me to post this info!
Teach For America is a national non-profit that works to ensure that all children growing up in our nation receive a quality education. Teach For America is a two year commitment to teach in a low income community, where currently only 8% of students go on to receive a college degree by the age of 24. In the short term, Teach For America places top leaders in classrooms as teachers; in the long term, Teach For America corps members become advocates for education equity across many career fields. Expenses-paid training is provided. Additionally, a full salary with benefits is provided through the region in which members are corps members. Currently there are 48+ regions; a region is scheduled to open in Virginia in 2014! All majors are encouraged to apply.
