ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

Our mission is to improve educational and life outcomes of children in urban schools by preparing culturally competent, effective career teachers who accelerate student achievement and disrupt systems of racial and socioeconomic inequity. Urban Teachers accomplishes this by recruiting outstanding candidates for a unique 4-year commitment. Over this duration, our dedicated faculty and staff equip our aspiring educators with state-of-the-art training, support them in their growth into being full-time teachers, and provide them a master's degree credential and dual-certification after they have demonstrated effective teaching practices and skills. Our program has received significant recognition in recent years and is quickly becoming a national model for a more rigorous, equitable, and impactful path to becoming a teacher.

Over the last decade, we have recruited, prepared, developed and supported over 1500 novice teachers for Baltimore, Washington, DC and Dallas. After evaluating city and school partners across the country, we are excited to take our lessons learned and flagship model to Philadelphia.
