A good teacher can mean the difference between a student graduating from high school or dropping out, between a student reaching for college or not applying. Yet, too often, our highest need students are the ones who do not have enough good teachers.

The mission of the NYC Teaching Fellows program is to recruit and prepare high-quality, dedicated individuals to become teachers who raise student achievement in the New York City classrooms that need them most.  

Through the NYC Teaching Fellows program, a Fellow can become a full-time teacher in a New York City public school within a few months of enrolling in the Fellowship. Rather than completing a traditional teacher education program prior to entering the classroom, Fellows engage in an intensive pre-service training program and then continue their education through a subsidized Master's degree program while teaching at a New York City public school. Fellows typically have no prior teaching experience, but possess the skills and attitudes that enable them to become successful teachers in New York City.

The NYC Teaching Fellows program provides outstanding graduating seniors and recent graduates an opportunity to join a network of talented individuals who have made the choice to give back, to lead, and to learn by becoming teachers in New York City.

Attend an information session to learn more about applying for the NYC Teaching Fellows program.
