Teach for Belgium
Internship Training and Support (Multilateral Funding)
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 2019, Teach for Belgium celebrated its 6th anniversary and employs a team of 20 staff.
Teach For All is a global network of over 50 independent, locally led and governed partner organizations and a global organization that works to accelerate the progress of the network. Our core purpose is to develop collective leadership to ensure all children can fulfill their potential. Each network partner recruits and develops promising future leaders to teach in their nations’ under-resourced schools and communities and, with this foundation, to work with others, inside and outside of education, to ensure all children are able to fulfill their potential. Teach For All’s global organization works to increase the network’s impact by capturing and spreading learning, facilitating connections among partners, accessing global resources, and fostering the leadership development of partner staff, teachers, and alumni.
