The mission of Urban Teaching Corps is to develop a corps of excellent, passionate and committed educators, targeting people of color, armed with the skills, tools and commitment to make significant academic gains with students from underserved educational communities.
What does an Apprentice do?
Apprentices commit to developing as teachers while working in a charter school with a mentor teacher and a strong support system provided by Urban Teaching Corps, for a year. While teaching, Apprentices will receive full health benefits and a salary of approximately $35,000. Following that year, they are eligible to be a lead teacher at that same school or other schools working with Urban Teaching Corps. It takes years to become an excellent teacher and we expect that Urban Teaching Corps' Apprentices will remain in education for a minimum of 4 years.
What are we looking for in an Apprentice?
* People with a strong belief that all students can excel academically
* Diversity in experiences, ethnicities and backgrounds
* Recent graduates, career changers or people that are from the communities UTC serves
* A strong commitment to personal excellence
* Coachability, Resilience, Humility, Leadership and a sense of Personal Responsibility
* A Bachelor's Degree at a minimum and a 3.0 GPA
