Opportunity for Seniors to Apply for Match Corps a One-Year Urban Education Service Fellowship: 2013-2014

You may be interested in trying for a highly competitive Match Corps fellowship. If so, please read the information included below.  Seniors in all Wilder School Majors are eligible.  Living stipends are provided for successful applicants.  This is not the same as “Teach for America.” Match Corps provides a full year of teacher training.  It is selective and seeks the same caliber of applicant as Teach for America.

ATTENTION SENIORS – do you:

a)      Want to be a highly effective educator in urban schools?
b)      Want to volunteer for a year before grad school, law school, or medical school?
c)       Want to get involved in education reform or public policy?
d)      Want to transition into a career in the non-profit or education sector?

If so, consider committing a year to the Match Corps, a one-year urban education service fellowship. Corps members volunteer full-time in one of our charter schools in Boston, or in a traditional district school in Lawrence with whom we have partnered, tutoring and mentoring a small caseload of students. We also offer the Match Teacher Residency, so that in addition to tutoring full-time, Corps members can train and earn certification to become full-time teachers in other high-need urban schools.

We recruit from all majors; candidates do not need to have a background in education. We seek candidates with strong content backgrounds – math, science, English, history, etc, and those who share our passion for social justice and education reform.

All of the details about our programs can be found here: http://www.matcheducation.org/apply
