Student Membership Interest Form

With your AFT student membership: 

  • You are taking part in a larger effort to strengthen public schools; 
  • You receive professional insurance, legal protection, and valuable benefits; 
  • You join a community of colleagues dedicated to helping you manage the transition from campus to classroom, and succeed as a teacher.

Student Associate Membership is a very special form of membership available to student teachers, or to those planning to student teach as part of their degree program. Student Associate Members must be student teaching (or planning to student teach) at a school in the U.S.

If you are interested in membership, please fill out and submit this form.

The terms of the comprehensive insurance offered through this program require that the student teacher work for an employer in the United States. If you are interested in AFT membership but live and work outside the US, please see the AFT Associate Membership page.
