City Year is proud to partner with Indianapolis Teaching Fellows (a TNTP Teaching Fellows Program) so our alumni can continue to lead on transformational change on pressing social problems. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for as a Indianapolis Teaching Fellows.
Indianapolis Teaching Fellows is an alternative teaching certification program offered through TNTP Teaching Fellows, which recruits and trains talented career changer and recent college graduates to be outstanding teachers in high-need schools across the country. This is a powerful moment for public education in Nevada. With more than $100 million in new investments, a plan to expand all-day kindergarten to every school in the state, financial incentives for new teachers and those in hard-to-staff roles, and more, Nevada is making a huge commitment to giving every child a great education. At the same time, our student population is growing, thanks to vibrant businesses and an affordable housing market. We face a critical need for great teachers to make the promise of education a reality for all our students.
The program is run by TNTP, a national nonprofit organization working to end educational inequality, in partnership with leading public school systems and states and more than 35,000 Teaching Fellows have been trained to date. Click here to learn more about becoming a great teacher.

The first year is hard for any new teacher, and you will work in a high-need school where students may lag several grades behind. To prepare you for that challenge, you will receive intensive pre-service training and coaching through Indianapolis Teaching Fellows and complete master’s level certification coursework through Marian University.
During your first two years as a full-time teacher, you will also complete certification coursework through our partnership with Marian University, where you will earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree through the Transition to Teaching (T2T) program. The T2T program is specifically designed to meet the needs of alternate route teachers.

- The tentative start date for Indianapolis Teaching Fellows is May 31, 2017. Please compare the start date for Indianapolis Teaching Fellows to your City Year graduation date.
