Community organizers for the Teach For America’s 2013 Delta Institute are seeking volunteers for June 9 when the participants arrive for registration.

TFA registration will take place from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Wyatt Gym.

Those helping with registration will serve in a variety of areas such as greeting corps members as they arrive, providing directional aid, and assisting those moving into the residence halls.

Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors and career interests who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity.

These corps members work in school districts challenged by poverty, geography or other issues. Their training to teach begins at summer institute sites located across the nation, including Cleveland, Atlanta, Ga., Chicago, Ill., Houston, Texas, Los Angeles, Calif., New York City, N.Y., Philadelphia, Penn., Phoenix, Ariz., and Tulsa, Okla.
