Teach For America
AmeriCorps States without Commissions FY 2011
Since 2004, Teach For America-South Dakota has placed corps members in schools on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in South Dakota's most impoverished and undeserved communities. We provide a critical source of well-trained teachers who are helping break the local cycle of educational inequity. Our corps is comprised of outstanding college graduates who commit two years to teach in low-income public schools and become life-long leaders in the effort to expand education opportunity for Native students in South Dakota.
