The mission of Teach for America is to support all U.S. students in gaining access to education equality. In Minnesota, this national organization works to close the educational gaps in the Twin Cities, where volunteers work with local school districts to help increase the number of low-income students who go to college. Volunteers are selected during a competitive application process that identifies natural leaders. Those chosen reside and teach in the under-served school districts after completing a rigorous teacher education program to earn Minnesota teaching certifications.
