Teach For Hong Kong Recruitment
All changes begin with young leaders in classrooms.
We nurture ambitious leaders through a one-year leadership program, where they will lead students at underserved schools. After the Fellowship, these young leaders will go into corporates, government, startups, institutions, or remain as visionary teachers, to implement changes from all sectors in society and drive systemic change in education.
Ultimately, we are a growing movement driving systemic change to better education and one of the fastest growing social impact startups in Hong Kong.
Education underpins the prospect of our city. However, the success of our students is still dependent on their socio-economic background.
According to the Census Statistics, there are 281K children living under the poverty line in Hong Kong. Only 1 out of 10 students under the poverty line are admitted to universities.
We believe it takes a village to raise a child. To bridge the education inequality requires all sectors in society to work together. We nurture socially-minded, cross-section leaders through our Fellowship, partner with corporations to go into underserved schools and engage public awareness of education inequality and the need for paradigm shifts in our education.
We are now in our 6th year with 39 Fellows, teaching full-time in 17 local underserved schools and have served over 10,000 underserved students. We are also funded by the Government’s SIE Fund, The D. H. Chen Foundation and The Jockey Club Charities Trust and are thriving as one of the fastest growing social impact start-up.
Our Alumni has gone into corporates, education industry, professional services, and startups and continue to drive our movement forward, creating changes in education and influencing others to join our growing movement.
