Match Education Recruiting


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 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/match-corps
