Pro-Bono Support


As a Cafritz Foundation grantee, Teaching for Change receives pro-bono access to Catchafire, a skills-based volunteer matching resource. The impact is invaluable, as summarized in the graphic below. In a number of cases, the volunteers have continued to provide support beyond the original project.

Catchafire support for Teaching for Change through the end of 2022.

Teaching for Change hosts a Communities for Just Schools Fund Education A-New Fellow who works with our DC Area Educators for Social Justice half-time.

Teaching for Change was selected for pro-bono representation by the Orrick law firm, thanks to the services of the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program.
