About Washington

When you join the Washington corps, you will teach for an initial two years in the Puget Sound or South Central Washington. Your experience will prepare you to lead the movement for educational equity as a member of our diverse and inclusive alumni network. 

Why Here?

The Washington education system is not preparing all students for college or careers. Our state is second in the concentration of STEM jobs, but 34th in STEM bachelor's degrees. For students of color, English language learners, and students growing up in poverty-impacted communities, there are many systemic barriers to opportunity. Our children deserve more.

Equity in Action

Every day, our corps members and alumni are working to ensure students can reach their full potential. In kindergarten classrooms, our students average more than 1.3 years of growth. In secondary STEM classrooms, our students master content at a rate of 80 percent and above. More than 80 percent of alumni surveyed report continuing to work in equity-related fields. Together, our teachers and alumni form a network fueling the movement for equity.

Fueling the Movement

Our 950+ member alumni network includes more than 300 classroom teachers, 25 school or district administrators, and leaders in the technology, law, health care and policy sectors. Representing a wide range of life experiences, we are united by our unwavering commitment to confront educational inequity and free our nation from this injustice. Join our movement.
