One day, all children in Kosova - regardless of their community or ethnicity – will have access to an education system which prepares them for lifelong success.
Teach For Kosova exists to solve the problem of educational inequity by enlisting the nation's most promising leaders in this effort.
We will recruit outstanding recent university graduates and young professionals - of all academic disciplines and career interests - to commit for an initial two years through the Teach For Kosova Fellowship as teachers in high needs schools, then support and develop them to become lifelong leaders and advocates for educational equity.
OUR THEORY OF CHANGE
1. By recruiting and selecting a diverse pool of university graduates and young professionals to serve for an initial two years as teachers in high need schools, TFK will build a new pool of highly effective teachers who will work relentlessly to expand educational opportunities for their students and show that Kosovar students are capable of achieving at a much higher level.
2. During the Fellowship, Fellows will gain an understanding of the complex challenges facing our children, our schools and our communities while working toward solutions that are firmly grounded in the Kosovar context. They will develop very strong emotional and moral attachments to the children and community they serve, want to take on more responsibilities as leaders, and build an informed sense of direction and priorities after graduating from the Fellowship.
3. As leaders in the classroom and the broader education system, and across all other relevant sectors, alumni of Teach For Kosova will work collaboratively and leverage their Teach For Kosova experience to create sustainable, system-level solutions to address socioeconomic challenges, build school capacity, and set high expectations for all children through their example and advocacy.
