About Detroit


While Detroit may be unfairly known for challenges that have surfaced recently in the national news—financial instability, decreasing population, and high crime rates, to name a few—we know it as a place of resilience. Across the city, positive momentum abounds through thoughtful entrepreneurship, creativity, and a belief in the renaissance of a once-great city. Detroiters believe that better times lie ahead, and our children must play a central role. Teach For America–Detroit is humbled to take part in this continued revitalization.

Our regional team is led by a born-and-raised Detroiter. Our staff is a combination of Michigan natives and transplants, all of whom have become fierce advocates for the Motor City. Like our staff, our corps and alumni hail from everywhere but are proud to call Detroit home.

Hand-in-hand with the community, we are working to make Detroit a place where our schools are pillars of educational excellence. We envision a city where passionate leaders fight to put students and families first so that we can proudly live up to Detroit's motto: "We hope for better things, it will rise from the ashes.”
