The Problem


80% of students growing up in rural areas have the opportunity to attend college. This is compared to less than 3% of students in rural areas. Teach For China believes this is a problem that should and can be solved.

Partner with Us. We are one of the few organizations that have official non-profit status with the government in the two provinces where we work: Yunnan and Guangdong. We work very closely with local partners in order to place our Fellows most appropriately in local Chinese public schools. Our government partners also partially fund our Fellows’ salaries. A PARTNER IN THE GLOBAL TEACH FOR ALL NETWORK.



Who is eligible to apply? Anyone who is a US citizen and who has graduated from a US college/university can apply to be a US fellow. If you are a Chinese National, you may apply as a Chinese Fellow.

What are you looking for in a candidate? We are looking for Fellows with the ability and conviction to change the lives of their students. Putting these children on fundamentally different life paths will require outstanding leadership skills, a relentless work ethic, and a deep belief in each and every student’s potential.

“Despite its relatively short history, Teach For China is already on the radar of my colleagues in admissions at Georgetown and our peer institutions. After learning more from your staff, I am even more impressed by the caliber of the program. At the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and other professionally-oriented graduate programs, we consider work experience to be a critical part of a successful application, and we appreciate students who have taken time out of their academic trajectories to pursue meaningful work opportunities like Teach For China.”
