Teach For India offers work with a purpose. Unfortunately that motivation and energy can be sapped when you're working here. There are clear favorites, and decisions are made based on their feelings and reflections. Don't step on any toes, and polish your grad school application while you're here. That's the only thing it truly accomplishes

This was a fantastic and the most challenging experience for me. There was a lot of learning too. The management is exceptional. The most enjoyable part of the job was to spend time in the classroom with Grade 2 kids.
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.

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.

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

Here, youre working with a bunch of highly qualified and talented individuals working toward the betterment of low income students. The volunteer / fellowship is something every individuals must experience. It changed your worldview and also gives one the opportunity to contribute toward changing the education system one school at a time. :)

Volunteering for Teach For India was an experience in itself. I taught underprivledged kids. The experience taught me to be selfless and helped me know my true self. It helped me become more patient and empathetic in life.

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.
