|Career Partnership with The Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation|
City Year is proud to partner with the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation 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 and chances for being selected for The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships is a program administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and focuses on four goals: transforming teacher education; getting strong STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) teachers into high-need urban and rural schools; attracting top candidates to the teaching profession; and cutting teacher attrition by retaining teachers.
Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows participate in a pre-service, full-time year of enriched, school-based master's coursework at one of seventeen partner universities. Fellows then commit to three years of teaching at a high-need urban or rural school and receive intensive mentoring from teacher leaders and veteran teachers during this formative time.
The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success as a Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellow and serving a year with City Year strengthens a candidate's application and chances for being selected as a resident teacher.

Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows have the opportunity to put their math and science expertise to work for the young people who need them most, giving high-need middle- and high-school students a better chance at rewarding careers and fully engaged lives. Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows also do much more: Through cutting-edge programs, they ready themselves for full careers as educators and help set new standards for tomorrow's teachers. Created under the guidance of Arthur Levine—current President of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and former President of Teachers College, Columbia University—these Teaching Fellowships combine some of the nation's best practices in teacher education, helping prepare Fellows for long-term success in the classroom.
