In response to the challenges faced by our incoming cohort, Urban Teachers has set up a special fund to provide essentials for our aspiring teachers who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Your contribution will provide housing, relocation or technology assistance to a future teacher in need.
Now more than ever, we are grateful for the teachers who, despite facing unprecedented challenges, are ensuring that learning continues. Teachers provide continuity for students, bring a sense of normalcy to children’s lives, and help children and families navigate new technologies and online learning. Urban Teachers is preparing to welcome a group of aspiring teachers whose careers will be defined by this crisis. Many members of Cohort 2020 are already experiencing significant financial challenges as they make arrangements for virtual summer training amidst the current economic challenges. We have already received tens of thousands of dollars worth of requests for financial support, and we expect much more. All #GivingTuesdayNow donations will go directly to our future teachers’ need for housing, food, virtual learning access and/or relocation to Baltimore, Dallas and Washington, DC.
Your support guarantees that Urban Teachers continues to supply Baltimore, Dallas and Washington, DC with a pipeline of culturally competent, effective career teachers who empower every child through learning.
