John Allen

Washington, Dc Metro Area

As a Teach for America corps member in his second year, John is working hard in the Lawrence Public School district to help close the achievement gap through high and consistent expectations, rigorous academic work, and a relentless belief that all young men and women have the ability to succeed, no matter what their zip code might be.

John founded Sweaters and Sustenance, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping bring warmth to homeless men and women during the Christmas and Holiday season. John's love for people has fueled his interest in continuing to teach after Teach for America and has pushed him to strengthen his involvement in the public policy arena, both at home in Washington, DC and in the Greater Boston area.
