Expansion Intern (Former Employee) – Bangalore, India – September 30, 2017
The culture of the job was welcoming enough, but the work being done there felt somewhat out of touch with the requirements of Bangalore-area schools. Many teachers and administrators in the area seemed to resent the structure and process that the organisation adhered to.
Fellow (Former Employee) – Ahmedabad, Gujarat – July 10, 2017
Teach for India taught me that teaching is leadership. My understanding of universe has become stronger and I have become more humble than before. I now don't judge others and I can separate people from their actions.
Fellow (Former Employee) – Ahmedabad, Gujarat – June 19, 2017
Excellent place to work for those who have their hearts in the right place. The work in itself is quite challenging, but the overall experience is worth it, especially if you love teaching and enjoy being around children/youth. They make the whole process even more fulfilling.
Autonomy, driven vision, open to feedback, strong sense of possibility

Fellow (Current Employee) – Mumbai, Maharashtra – March 9, 2017
A typical day at work looks like a lot of field work at the school and community. I have learned a lot about the education system in India and about how the low-income schools operate in India. The management at Teach for India is very approachable and promotes open communication. The hardest part of the job is juggling between the responsibilities of Teach for India as a Fellow and the responsibilities of a school as an educator. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get opportunities to interact with and educate 40 little humans and find a lot of purpose in the job that you are doing.

TFI is one of the most challenging grounds to show and hone your skills. Apart from the tedious work of planning, teaching, coaching for extracurricular activities, work involves collaboration with all stakeholders. Integrate as much as possible with the kids' lifestyles and work to put them on the path of excellent education.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Mumbai, Maharashtra – March 2, 2017
One of the best experiences teaching underprivileged children. The mentors were fantastic and were very encouraging and accommodating. Fantastic management especially since it involved teaching school kids as part of their daily curriculum.
Fellow (Former Employee) – Chennai, Tamil Nadu – February 26, 2017
It is not easy to complete the fellowship if you aren't motivated by the passion to contribute to the cause. You pick up amazing leadership and time management skills during the two years. You become an all-rounder at everything from relationship building to project management. Work culture is highly impactful and purpose oriented.
