In the summer of 2010, Teach For America will hold eight training institutes in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and the Mississippi Delta.  These institutes provide our newest corps members with the opportunity to hone their leadership and classroom skills, and to begin their paths to closing the tremendous achievement gap that exists throughout the country. 

We are looking for outstanding undergraduates to serve as Operations Coordinators (OCs) at each of the institutes.  OCs will help support our effort to manage and maintain successful summer institutes that each serve approximately 600 corps members, 120 staff members, and over 1,500 summer school students.  While OCs will not work directly with summer school students, they will play an integral role in the daily operations of our program that trains incoming corps members and gain unique insight into Teach For America.

The full job description and application requirements can be found on our website here:   The dates of the commitment vary across the institutes.  Operations coordinators are paid hourly with a guaranteed salary range of $2,500-$3,000 for the duration of the commitment. OCs are required to live on-site at our institutes for the duration of their commitment, so room, board, and some travel and shipping costs are provided for all staff members.
