About Teach For Cambodia

We often get asked “What is Teach For Cambodia?” Most people think teaching or in an extreme case, people 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. We are not investing in infrastructure for schools but in future Cambodian leaders through the Teach For Cambodia Fellowship Program. These leaders, also known as Fellows, commit to teach full-time for two years in public school. During the two years, they participate in our training and support program geared towards building knowledge, mindset and skills to optimize Fellows’ impact on student outcomes. All Fellows are enrolled in a Master of Education program at our partner university, Royal University of Phnom Penh.

 

In the first year of operation, Teach For Cambodia successfully placed and developed its first cohort of 33 teaching Fellows across 9 schools serving 5,200 marginalized children. These promising future leaders with diverse backgrounds and education (including degrees in information technology, science, engineering, law, international relations, psychology, social work, etc.) have committed at least two years to teaching in rural regions in Kandal and Kampong Chhnang provinces and poor urban areas in Phnom Penh. As we look ahead to 2020 and beyond, Teach For Cambodia aims to have 100 Fellows serving 15,000 children, as well as over 30 alumni pursuing careers at all levels and across sectors to ensure system-level change—from teachers, to school leaders, to policymakers, to social innovators.  

 

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.

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!
