Get to Know Austin

Welcome to Austin

Welcome to Austin! We are excited to have you join our nearly 900 Teach For America alumni who call Austin home. Teach For America launched in Austin in the fall of 2019 as the first “alumni-forward” region in the country. Started by alumni in 2008, Teach For America Austin has been supported by a volunteer alumni board for over a decade.

Our network works in every corner of Austin’s education landscape—teaching in classrooms, leading campuses, and designing policy as elected officials. Our alumni provide wrap-around services, advocate for student-centered policies, and professional development for our classroom and campus leaders. Outside of the classroom, we have a growing network of alumni working in technology, law and policy, as well as government officials. Together we make up a passionate and committed network working with students and families to ensure access to opportunity for all Austinites.

Teach For America Austin is committed to being a resource for the community as well as our alumni network. Whether you are looking for a new job or need recommendations on the best restaurants in town, we’re here for you. We look forward to connecting with you soon!

In partnership,
Christine Nishimura, Executive Director, and the Teach For America Austin Alumni Board
