Career Partnership with Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency


City Year is proud to partner with Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency (LAUTR) 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 as a LAUTR resident.



LAUTR is an intensive program that leads to earning a teaching credential and master’s degree through California State University Los Angeles (CSULA). Designed to equip future teachers to close the achievement gap in high-need urban schools, this 18 to 24 month social justice-driven program offers an opportunity for teacher residents to work alongside outstanding mentor teachers for an entire school year. LAUTR offers 75 teacher resident positions each year until 2018.


The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success as an LAUTR resident and serving a year with City Year strengthens an applicant’s application and chances for being selected a resident through LAUTR.
