Best experience of my life. Learn a lot about training and development, stakeholder management, development communication and management. It gives you a clear picture of what to expect from the social sector in India.

Good place to work

The company is alright but doesn't really cater to their students needs. The basic needs like literacy and math is sacrificed to promote what they call higher order skills which the students usually do not achieve.

Helps to take informed decisions

Learning circles and Fellow supports play a vital role. The immersion training at Institution will help to deep dive into educational crises. there is a full work-life balance, if you plan everything properly.

Productive and enriching

It was a place that equipped me a lot of skills! Had a lot of support from people working in the same organisation! Made me love teaching and relies that it's my passion.

Stressful but worth it

The hardest part of the job is to find the teacher in you. To unlearn and learn every single day. Building relationships with the students and co-teachers and understanding the ground reality takes a lot of time and effort from your your side. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are content even though you are extremely exhausted as you know you are out there changing the future of those children in a better way that they truly deserve.

Excellent Work Culture

Engaging work and makes you grow as a person. Working in Teach for India makes us understand life and life skills together. We work with empathy and compassion. Situations could be stressful as we work closely with ground reality but the sense of possibility to deal it with togetherness is high. Though the fellow payscale is less, I am happy to work and learn here.

Incredible Place to Work

TFI is a great company that values each of its members. It aims at creating a family of people who will work together to make the lives of underprivileged children better. A supportive and accommodative work culture, where you are constantly challenged to make the most of the available resources. Requires a lot of thinking on your feet and working with many stakeholders.

The fellowship is only for those people who believe in bringing a change through education. It gave me the opportunity to understand the problems with the education system and my role in solving them.

Good learning experience

It is a great place with an enormous impact on the society. Since its a non profit organisation, it was a unique experience for me where people believed in the work they were doing. It was more than just work for them.

Productive and fun workplace

Working in a Non- Government organisation is fun as you get to see how the other half of the world lives. My job was mainly to teach the underprivileged children until the 10th grade. Teaching them subjects like- Science, Maths, Language (English, Hindi, Marathi), History, Geography, Art & Craft. The objective was to bring up the level of government education in India via an NGO (Teach for India) to the convent school level.

Culture based organization

It is a very encouraging environment at Teach for India. Everybody works at Teach for India for self-satisfaction and It provides a very open culture

It was an incredible experience

It might seem to an applicant that the fellowship is intended to give you an experience of teaching in a classroom, but my learnings were not limited to teaching but very holistic which helped me to understand the challenges of the education system, all the while enabling me to take on those challenges.

Productive work place

The internal team does not influence the work much. The days are packed as the first half is engaged in the school and second half in community engagement.

Productive but conservative and corporate setup

Though I am unsure if it was just my team manager who was bad at her management or its the whole of Teach For India team culture, I would recommend not to get too flustered by the big name as from inside its still the same, however revolutionary it might project itself.

Great place to learn, poor work life balance

The culture is great, the people are great and are very passionate about bringing about change. There is an enormous scope for learning and growth so would totally recommend it to young people starting off in their careers but for mid career professionals who want to have a good work life balance and focus on your family as well as your career this may not be a great place. Just by virtue of the kind of work they do, it is hard, challenging and exciting and consumes a large part of your work and personal life

Life-Changing Experience!

Teach for India lets an individual develop personally and professionally by providing effective training, guidance and support. The culture of the organization is very positive and friendly. The learnings would be immense! If you are looking to work on yourself and work with multiple stakeholders at the same time, to solve challenges at a grassroot level, then this is a great platform for you!

Extremely rewarding and challenging workplace

Working as a HR intern at TFI was one of the most rewarding experiences ever. You get a chance to meet and talk to incredibly inspiring people from all walks of life who are driven to make a social impact. My public speaking skills were honed during my time at TFI.

Good ngo

Good NGO with dedicated volunteers. Those interested in utilizing their Saturday mornings and spend time with children can join this NGO . This NGO is organised and I think you will enjoy working with them

Amazing work place

Volunteering for Teach for India was one of the best decisions I made as a Grad student. Being able to teach and interact with young children and understanding their way of life was just so amazing.
