WHY TEACH FOR CAMBODIA?

We are a home-grown organization seeking to reimagine education and the social impact sector in Cambodia

  • Do you want to wake up in the morning and look forward to seeing your team?
  • Do you want a role where you can challenge and grow yourself?
  • Do you want to create learning, fun and….a little weirdness together?

Welcome to Teach For Cambodia. 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!

 

CORE VALUES

Teach For Cambodia's core values are the heart of the organization

Constant Learning


We reflect on past experiences and data to draw lessons for improvement. We take ownership of our work while greeting new ideas and feedback openly. We are committed to grow our learning in problem-solving, engaging in honest self-reflection and making the choices in the best interests of our organization and mission.

Leadership


We set bold, measurable visions, act with urgency, and invest others in working towards them. We approach our work in resourceful, strategic, and purposeful ways to ensure the best outcomes for the organization and mission. We persevere in the face of adversity, align our beliefs and actions, assume personal responsibility for result, and operate from a place of wholeness and asset-based view.

Respect & Humility


We value all who are engaged in this challenging work. We keep in mind the limitations of our own experiences and actively seek out diverse perspectives and expertise.

Team


We value the diversity of our team and operate with respect and kindness. We seek to empower and challenge each other to be at our best, so that we can achieve a collective impact. We have fun in the process of making an impact together!

Locally Rooted, Globally Informed


We are empowered by local history, perspectives, needs, and opportunities to addressing educational inequity. We work in meaningful partnerships with key stakeholders in the public and private sector – all while growing our insights on best practices outside of our country to innovate and maximize our impact locally

LIFE AT TFC

Why our people love coming to work everyday

 Happiness at Work


Our team is made up of passionate and committed individuals who love coming to work everyday and challenging themselves and each other to do better. Why? So we can create a better future for Cambodian children.

Our office is located at Raintree Cambodia, a new boutique office building in the middle of Phnom Penh’s financial district. Raintree is a strategic partner of Teach For Cambodia and we love that we get to fight for educational equity everyday from here.

We're a home-grown organization looking to reimagine education and the social sector. That means we are very serious about results and doing what's right for the vision, mission and our people. We offer a flexible vacation policy, medical allowance, and honor the public holiday schedule. We’re doing a lot of things for the very first time so you have the chance to help us build an enduring organization.

Opportunity For Impact


In our 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.

A Serious Commitment to Professional Development


The most important quality you can bring is a proactive commitment to learning and humility. We will challenge you to be better and to grow each day, get outside of your comfort zone, and unlearn in order to relearn.

We will send you to conferences, bring in outside expertise, provide on-the-job coaching and feedback, and give you access to some of the most provocative and innovative practitioners and experts on education in the world today.

 

 A Network For Collective Leadership


Educational inequity is too big and complex a problem to solve alone... That’s why we don’t work alone! We look for leaders and experts within and outside of Cambodia who share the same vision -- unleash the potential of all children -- so that we can accelerate our learning and impact.

OUR NETWORK

Our work would not be possible without our team, board, partners, and global network of champions and advocates. (Also, thank you to our family and friends!)
