Teach For Cambodia

About Teach For Cambodia

We often get asked “What is Teach For Cambodia?” Most people think teaching or in an extreme case, we have people who think Teach For Cambodia is a school. First, Teach For Cambodia is a home-grown organization seeking to reimagine education and the social impact sector in Cambodia by enlisting future leaders in our mission. We are not investing in infrastructure for school but in young Cambodian leaders and teachers -- local change agents -- who are thoughtful about bringing resources into schools, commit to lead full-time as classroom teachers for two-years in public schools, lead through examples… those who upskill literacy, math, science and broaden outcomes for students. We think an investment in local leadership and student learning is the BASE for the future of work and social development in Cambodia.

Fundamentally, we believe Cambodia’s future relies heavily on the development of its people. And our team is a core part of making this happen. We invest in team members to ensure that they contribute to our mission in the way that is most meaningful to them.

Our team is very passionate about our mission and very serious about our work, and we support each other to grow personally and professionally. What we want you to know is that our culture is about creating learning, fun and a little weirdness. By weirdness, we want to celebrate our team’s individuality and bravery in bringing their full self to work. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our team!
