Urban Teaching Corps wants to connect our nation's most underserved students with great, new teachers.
The truth is, many students in disadvantaged communities are falling through the cracks. To combat this, urban students need the best teachers—they need teachers who are highly skilled and committed and they need teachers who feel a strong personal connection to them, and to whom urban students feel connected.
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. – less
