Match Corps

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 serve full-time in one of our charter schools in Boston, 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 are currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year on a rolling basis (while spots last).  To learn more about Match Corps: Boston and MTR and/or to apply, visit httP:://
Last year Match Corps partnered with the University of Chicago to bring the Match Corps tutoring model to twelve traditional public high schools in Chicago.  We will be accepting applications for our Chicago location later this year.  Please e-mail if you want to be notified when the application becomes available.  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:
