Our program

Within a two-year professional development and leadership program all Teach For Bulgaria participants go through intensive training and are directly supported in the classroom and in all aspects of their work with students from vulnerable communities in 11 regions in Bulgaria. Our alumni continue working towards equal access to quality education after the program by pursuing careers as effective teachers and school leaders, social entrepreneurs, or by joining the business sector. The experience from the program serves as the basis for their further professional development. It also provides them with a wide network of supporters and partners which allows them to be even more effective in their work towards improving education in Bulgaria.

The organization has built a strong community of current teachers and alumni, as well as key partners from all sectors in order to ensure long-term, sustainable access to high-quality education to every child in Bulgaria.
