Tomás Recart

Inspired by the work of Teach for America, Recart returned to Chile after his studies in Harvard to found Enseña Chile. Enseña Chile recruits Chile`s prominent future leaders, from different professional backgrounds, to teach in public schools in low-income communities for two years. As they experience what it is to transform the lives of hundreds of kids, they become part of a movement of leaders that will advocate for educational reform. Enseña Chile is poised for fast growth: In 2009 it selected 29 teachers to work in 14 schools. Today there are more than 100 teachers reaching more than 13,000 students in 40 schools." [+]
