WHAT DOES TEACH FOR BELGIUM DO?
Teach for Belgium is a non-profit organization created in 2013 whose vision is to enable the success of all students, regardless of their socio-economic background. Teach for Belgium aims to reduce school inequities by attracting, supporting and deploying young professionals as well as career changers to become inspiring teachers for students from the most disadvantaged schools in Belgium. In 2018, Teach for Belgium celebrated her 5th anniversary. With a team of 18 people, we have so far recruited, trained and supported 180 participants and alumni, who reach 15 000 students every year.
