Teach For America Ignite

Mission:

The Ignite Fellowship, Teach For America's high-impact tutoring corps, accelerates learning and fosters belonging through virtual small group learning experiences led by exceptional, equity-minded leaders.

Program Description:

Teach For America Ignite strategically aligns high-impact tutoring to your schools’ goals to accelerate what you are working on with students. Ignite offers virtual, small-group, high dosage instruction focused on elementary literacy, middle school math, or post-secondary access. We prioritize school embeddedness, partnering with schools to identify a grade level and focus area, support a school-based veteran educator who serves as the Ignite Site Leader, and use school-based curriculum and assessments. 2-3 students in person connect with a virtual tutor during the school day 3-5 times per week for 2-4 hours per week across 22+ weeks in the school year.
