Who are we?
- We are passionate and committed young people who like big challenges.
- We are locally and internationally educated. We come from institutions such as Columbia, UPenn, Berkeley, WashU, University of Hong Kong, RUPP, IFL, and RULE.

- Sometimes, we end up on the news!
What do we do?
We often get asked, “What is Teach For Cambodia?” Most people think teaching or sometimes, people think TFC is a school. First, Teach For Cambodia is a home-grown organization and we are seeking to reimagine education and the social impact sector in Cambodia. We are not investing in infrastructure for schools; we are investing in future Cambodian leaders committed to teaching full-time for two years in public schools. During the two years, they participate in our training and support program geared towards building knowledge, mindsets, and skills to optimize their 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, TFC successfully placed and developed its first cohort of 32 Fellows across 9 schools serving 5,000 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. We want you to know 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!
**All positions require fluent written and spoken English skills, a minimum of a bachelor’s degree or higher in any field, and proficiency in Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Google Suite applications.
