Match Corps, an AmeriCorps program, is a one-year urban education fellowship. Recent college graduates from top universities across the country commit a year  to closing the achievement gap in Boston, one student at a time. Match Corps Members tutor small groups of students in grades 1-12 and partner closely with families. Tutors are integral members of high-performing school teams in some of the best schools in America and discover what it takes to change the lives of kids. Those interested in becoming teachers can also apply for the Match teacher residency, in which students enroll in the Sposato Graduate School of Education, which offers a pathway to obtain a Master’s in Effective Teaching and teacher certification.
