Educational outcomes for students in New Mexico are poor. Our students are full of potential, but in many places fewer than 50% of them will graduate from high school. We believe without hesitation that our students have the power to change this narrative.

Over the last 15 years, our corps has grown into a regional organization of teachers with 200+ alumni who are invested in the communities we serve. They believe strongly in our young people and continue to build innovative partnerships that will change outcomes for thousands of students. This work is always student-focused and community-led.

Our team believes in strengthening the sovereignty of Tribal Nations. We are committed to recruiting more Native teachers and placing classroom leaders in schools across the Navajo Nation, the Pueblo of Zuni, and the small towns in between. We believe that one day all students in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
