About Us

We recruit Nigeria’s most promising future leaders from varied disciplines to teach in Nigeria’s underserved schools in low-income communities through a highly selective, two-year Fellowship.

The Teach For Nigeria Fellowship is a transformational leadership program that equips Fellows with transferable leadership skills to effect change beyond the classrooms in the communities we serve. After the Fellowship, alumni of Teach For Nigeria build on their classroom teaching experience to drive long-term systemic changes in the educational sector in Nigeria as they progress into leadership roles in their varied professions. The Teach For Nigeria model is based on the proven success of 40 country organizations including Teach For America, Teach First UK, Teach For Ghana, Teach For Bangladesh, Teach For Nepal and Teach For India, who are all part of the Teach For All network.

WHO WE ARE

Teach for Nigeria is focused on developing a movement of leaders across the nation who are committed to putting an end to educational inequity.

WHY WE EXIST

Millions of children in Nigeria lack access to an excellent education that will give them a successful future.

This results in more and more people continuing to join the cycle of poverty, making it increasingly difficult for our nation to live up to its vision of a better future. Teach For Nigeria exists to change this narrative.

OUR VISION

One day, every Nigerian child will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.

OUR MISSION

To mobilize leaders who will drive the movement towards educational equity and excellence in Nigeria.
