This September, we're launching a pilot Back-to-School Teacher Ambassador Program in five states, working with a select group of teachers. Back-to-School Teacher Ambassadors will work with DonorsChoose.org staff and teachers to help more teachers in their area tap into funding through DonorsChoose.org, making sure students can have the best back-to-school season without teachers/educators needing to foot the bill out of their own paycheck.
How are Back-To-School Teacher Ambassadors selected?
This is a pilot program, so we started small! For this back-to-school, we identified about fifty DonorsChoose.org teachers to represent select geographic regions where we saw that many teachers in low-income communities had yet to access funding from DonorsChoose.org. Those regions include Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Vermont.
What is the goal of the Back-To-School Teacher Ambassador Program?
The goal of the pilot DonorsChoose.org Back-To-School Teacher Ambassador Program is to help 500 new teachers in these five states create their very first project on DonorsChoose.org, getting the resources they need for their classroom without needing to pay out of pocket.
How can I become a part of the Back-To-School Teacher Ambassador Program?
The pilot Back-To-School Teacher Ambassador Program has launched and is no longer accepting applications. If you’d be interested in joining the Teacher Ambassador Program in the future, let us know here.
