Career Partnership with Michigan Teacher Corps

City Year is proud to partner with the Michigan Teacher Corps, a program of TNTP, so our alumni can continue to make a difference in classrooms and in the lives of students. 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, increasing their chances for being selected into the Michigan Teacher Corps. 


Michigan Teacher Corps is an ambitious, teacher-centered effort to invigorate struggling Detroit schools with great teaching. With the support of the Michigan Department of Education, MTC builds a passionate group of like-minded teachers, and provides the training and coaching they need to provide a transformative education for Detroit students. MTC is committed to serving Michigan’s lowest-performing schools, with a focus on Priority schools—those in the bottom 5 percent of state rankings, where too many children start school behind and struggle to catch up. We believe that Detroit schools have what it takes to thrive, and we know that great teachers are central to that renewal, both in their classrooms and within their schools.
