Position's Title
Match Corps: Boston 2014-15 Education Fellowship
Number of Openings
9
Description
Are you looking for an opportunity to serve in inner-city schools? Do you want a great gap-year before law school, medical school, or grad school, or before going into a career in the non-profit sector?

Match Corps: Boston is a one-year, full-time urban education fellowship program. It pairs Corps members with 6-7 students at Match High School, Match Middle School, Match Next or Match Community Day Elementary School. Corps members run small group or 1-on-1 tutorials, working to guarantee the academic success of Match students while building personal relationships with the students and their parents. This full-time service year program is designed to fully close the academic achievement gap between minority students and their non-minority peers, one student at a time.

Match Corps: Boston allows idealistic and dedicated young people to invest their time and energy in just a few students’ academic progress. Match Corps is not necessarily looking for the future teachers of America. We want future doctors, lawyers, MBAs, architects; we want majors from math, political science, literature, economics, engineering – anyone willing to work tirelessly for one year to erase the achievement gap.

Corps members who know they want to teach for at least two years in an urban charter school should opt in to Match Teacher Residency. Match Teacher Residency is our in-house, optional teacher training program. In MTR, Boston Corps members receive additional training on the weekends with the aim of becoming unusually effective first year teachers in high-poverty schools. Graduates of MTR go on to teach at some of the most highly regarded charter schools in the country and consistently outperform other first- and second-year teachers in the classroom.
