Generation Teach Inc.
Generation Teach develops talented and diverse college and college-bound students with local pathways into careers in education.
BUILDING A MOVEMENT
Generation Teach was founded in 2014 as a response to the need for a more diverse and better prepared pool of candidates entering teaching in urban schools. After a successful pilot in Denver, we expanded in Denver and opened in Boston. In 2017, we expanded to Providence, RI and Western MA. Our goal is to build a national movement of diverse and talented young people entering our most important profession.
BUILDING CAPACITY AND COMMITMENT
We recruit college and college-bound students to a Summer Teaching Fellowship to introduce them to the complex and intellectually demanding work of teaching and to challenge them as learners and leaders. We invite fellows to complete multiple summers with us. Our hope is that these early experiences in urban education shape talented young people's decisions to pursue careers in teaching while better preparing them for the rigors of the profession.
BUILDING PIPELINES AND PARTNERSHIPS
We believe that teacher development should start earlier and occur in concert with schools. Our summer teaching fellowships are hosted by local district and charter schools that share our commitment to building a strong pipeline of local talent by investing early in potential teachers who reflect the diversity of the students we serve. We provide differentiated pathways into teaching through partnerships with schools and teacher education programs.
