Teach For Sierra Leone believes that every child in Sierra Leone deserves an excellent and empowering education. Our mission is to build a movement of diverse and capable leaders who will work to end educational inequity in our country, starting by teaching for two years in low-income schools. As a start-up non-profit organization working in a challenging environment, we are looking for exceptional individuals who are both self-directed and strong team players to make up our leadership team.
Teach For Sierra Leone is recruiting and selecting outstanding university graduates and young professionals to join a rigorous, internationally – recognized Fellowship program during which they will teach full-time for two years in a low-income school. Through this exposure, Fellows will develop critical knowledge and first-hand understanding of the education system in Sierra Leone and the challenges it faces. With intensive training, support and professional development from Teach For Sierra Leone, Fellows will maximize their impact in the classroom and communities and also enhance their own leadership skills.
Alumni of the program and, over time, their students also will become the next generation of Sierra Leonean Leaders in education, business, medicine, law, government, journalism and other fields. Informed by their experience, they will work from inside and outside the system to affect the fundamental changes necessary to ensure that every child attains an excellent education.
