Give the Gift of a
Great Teacher

Teaching takes grit, rigor, ability and knowledge. Our teachers are dedicated to refining their practices and giving their all to students. To best serve students, we need to elevate the teaching profession by putting more highly skilled and deeply committed career teachers who, know how to improve outcomes for every learner, into more classrooms.

Together, we can ensure thousands of students get the teachers they deserve.
When you support Urban Teachers, you’re investing in the most powerful school improvement mechanism there is: a talent pipeline of highly effective teachers. Our supremely trained educators are in their classrooms every day, setting an example for their colleagues, and tipping entire school communities toward excellence. We are raising the bar for teacher preparation in the cities in which we work.

As school leaders witness the improvement our teachers make in student outcomes, the demand for Urban Teachers is steadily growing. You know the impact of a great teacher in the life of a child. You can be part of our campaign for more effective, more accountable teacher preparation nationwide.

Join other donors who understand the value of a great teacher and are helping us prepare great teachers for the children who need them most.
