Teach For America (TFA) is a national organization whose mission is to eliminate educational inequity by developing committed leaders in the classroom who will fight for the students of tomorrow. TFA recruits top college graduates of all backgrounds and trains them to have an immediate, positive impact on their students. The college graduates teach for two years in underserved urban and rural public schools.

Since 1990, nearly 33,000 leaders have joined TFA and become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity.

Our partnership: together we can make a difference

Lincoln Financial has supported TFA in Philadelphia and in Hartford, CT, for many years. In 2012, we increased the scope of our partnership by announcing a national, three-year grant of $1 million. In addition to supporting TFA's overall work in Philadelphia and Hartford, the grant supports the national science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) teacher recruitment initiative.

Lincoln focuses on STEM education because it is particularly critical to a student's success in an increasingly complex world. TFA is addressing the need to improve math and science education by recruiting, training and supporting outstanding teachers. With its partnership, Lincoln hopes to help TFA reach its goal of having 5,000 STEM teachers in classrooms by 2015.

See how Lincoln is partnering with TFA to make a difference for the children in our communities.
