Organization Overview

Urban Teacher Center is a four-year, alternative teacher preparation program that operates in the Washington, DC/Baltimore region (and soon in additional cities). Each cohort participates in an intensive year-long residency, followed by a three-year teaching commitment in a high-need urban school. In addition to the clinical experience at a school, UTC residents also enroll in a Master’s of Education program that is directly relevant to the urban teacher. All UTC teachers are part of an unprecedented commitment to student performance: only those who can demonstrate that they can improve student learning will complete the program. Over time, UTC teachers will be among the most expert and results-oriented in the nation. For more information, visit the UTC website at

As an early-stage organization, UTC has a significant need for additional talent to supplement our team. For the upcoming school year, we are seeking interns who can make an ongoing and significant investment with us. Though internships are unpaid, they provide outstanding experience to individuals interested in teacher practice, teacher policy, or the start-up of a non-profit organization.
