TFA Launches Veterans Initiative

Teach for America has launched an initiative called "You Served for American, Now Teach for America," intended to offer war veterans an opportunity to "put their leadership and skills to work in America’s highest-need communities while meeting their desire to continue to serve our nation."

From the press release:
“This program enables America’s new greatest generation of veterans to continue to serve their country after coming home from war. Teach for America is giving veterans the well-deserved opportunity to transition into meaningful careers in the civilian workforce,“ said Paul Rieckhoff, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit, nonpartisan Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. “Teaching in schools across America, I know our new veterans will prove to be great role models for thousands of young Americans.”
