what we do

Four Weeks for America Program

Announcements

The MIT Public Service Center and Teach For America have teamed up to offer MIT students an exciting opportunity for IAP 2015. Spend your IAP solving problems that matter, learn about America’s education system, and make a difference for kids -- all expenses paid.*

Ever wonder what it’s like to teach in a small, rural school or a big inner-city classroom? Want to inspire kids about science and math? Want to learn about educational change and policy? Or, have you wondered what Teach For America is like, and don’t want to wait to find out?

Then apply to participate in the Four Weeks for America Program! Projects may include helping a teacher figure out how to:

  • Develop a math or science unit curriculum
  • Perform data analysis on classroom performance
  • Research tools to increase impact in the classroom

Interested? Challenged? Excited? We are too!

*The Small Print: The PSC will pay for your travel expenses, give you a food stipend, and help with materials expenses if they are needed. Teach For America will arrange for your work and your accommodations (which likely means sleeping on the couch or in the guest room of the teacher you are working with).
