The OneDay Program provides college students with the opportunity to virtually volunteer and have an immediate impact in K-12 classrooms across the country.
Teach For America will work to match volunteers with current corps members and their classroom projects, and all volunteers will engage in an orientation prior to beginning the program.
Over the course of ~ 1 month, volunteers will flex leadership muscles, problem-solving skills, and provide much needed support to classrooms and teachers. The program will also allow volunteers to gain insight into the corps member experience with Teach For America.
Review the timeline below, check-out a handful of corps member projects in the "Project Examples" tab, then apply by clicking either of the yellow "Apply" buttons or heading to this link: http://engage.tfa.org/OneDay-Program-Apply
