“There is no greater reward, as a teacher, than to teach in your own community and among fellow indigenous youth. Teach For America has given me the chance to create a better future for na keiki o Hawai`i (the children of Hawai`i).” – Dane Carlson, Hawai‘i ‘10

Learn more about our Native Alliance Initiative, working to address the fact that Native children experience some of the highest levels of poverty in our country, thereby limiting their academic and life options. We have placements in New Mexico, Hawai’i, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Washington State where our corps members are teaching more than 9,000 children from Native backgrounds in these communities. Culturally Responsive Teaching is also one of our primary and understanding of tribal sovereignty into our Corps training.
