About South Carolina


Teach For America's partnership with South Carolina was established in 2011 with 30 charter corps members and 60 alumni working in the state. Today, we have 100 corps members serving partner schools in Lowcountry, Midlands and Pee Dee communities, as well as over 240 alumni working towards educational equity. Teach For America is excited to be a part of the statewide movement for change at an especially exciting time of growth and expansion in education in our state.

South Carolina corps members are welcomed into a community of leaders that understand what it means to Be Aware – understanding the historical context of their community; Be Active – prioritize building relationships and leveraging the assets of their communities; and Be SC – coupling the history and current assets of the community to impact change for students in South Carolina. Together with our partner districts and organizations we know we will see the day when all South Carolina students have the opportunity to excel.
