Teach for Georgia and Teach for America will have a joint info session. Come learn about these two-year service programs. The info session is geared towards STEM-field majors, but all majors are welcome to attend.
Teach for Georgia is a grant from the Georgia Race to the Top Innovation Fund and a great opportunity for Tech students and recent graduates who are interested in teaching. The state currently is experiencing a critical shortage of qualified teachers in secondary Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The shortage is particularly profound in rural areas. As a Georgia Tech student or alum, you are among the most highly qualified in the STEM fields and are able to help alleviate this problem. You can have the chance to have a positive influence on the lives of students by teaching a STEM subject in a rural Georgia high school for two years. Quality education should be accessible to all students regardless of socio-economic status or location.
Teach for Georgia is not part of Teach for America or AmeriCorps. The Teach for Georgia program is similar to Teach for America but serves the areas of Georgia that Teach for America does not. Teach for America serves 46 regions including Metro Atlanta. Teach for Georgia serves many rural counties within the state outside of Metro Atlanta. A representative from Teach from America will also be present to discuss Teach for America in Atlanta as well as across the country.
