From Gina D’Addario with Match Corps:
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.
