The Class of 2009 faces one of the toughest job markets in recent history.  While many businesses across the country have issued across the board hiring freezes, there’s one bright light that continues to shine. Teach For America, an organization that trains high achieving grads to teach in poverty stricken districts, continues to expand with over 500 new spots for recruits this year.  A record 4100 students signed on to five weeks of training and a two year commitment.  Where are the students coming from? Michigan, Harvard, Texas, Yale, Wisconsin, Cornell and UNC are the diplomas held by most of the class.  And, interestingly enough, Teach For America is the number one employer for Brown, Georgetown and Vanderbilt.  Take a look to find out more about its mission and opportunities.
