Career Partnership with Match Education

City Year is proud to partner with with Match Education so that 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 Match Associate Teacher or Match Corps Fellow.


Match Education  is a non-profit organization working to close the achievement gap through various innovations, including full-time professional tutoring and teacher training. We are widely recognized for success in preparing low-income students for success in four-year colleges.

Match Associate Teacher

Associate Teachers are placed on grade-level (K-5) or subject level (6-12) teams in Match Public Charter Schools for an intensive year-long apprenticeship. Throughout the year, our associate teachers are coached and mentored by school leaders at Match and slowly assume more classroom responsibilities. All of our associate teachers are also enrolled in the Sposato Graduate School of Education. SGSE offers highly practical, hands-on training in effectively designing and implementing rigorous instruction, and in building classroom cultures consistent with achievement, purposefulness, and joy.  Through courses, coaching, and classroom experience, associate teachers improve their teaching and planning expertise with the goal of becoming lead teachers in Match and other schools with similar missions the following year.

Match Corps Fellowship

At our charter schools in Boston, we provide high-dosage in-school tutoring to each of our students through the Match Corps, an 11-month service fellowship for individuals interested in committing a year of service to inner-city schools. This high-impact tutoring model has been described as a “transforming opportunity” for students by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Corps members are assigned a personal caseload of 6 to 10 students at the beginning of the year. Match Corps members work with their students in small-group or individual tutorials over the course of each day, providing close academic support, mainly in math and English Language Arts, and supporting habits that foster the academic success of their tutees. Match Corps alumni go on to some of the best law, med and grad schools, to teach, or to other careers in or outside of education.
