Our Mission

The mission of the NYC Teaching Collaborative is to recruit and prepare talented, committed individuals to become effective teachers who dedicate themselves to raising student achievement and effecting change in New York City's highest-need schools.

Every student in New York City deserves an excellent teacher. Many schools in our highest need communities still struggle to attract and retain highly effective educators. The NYC Teaching Collaborative is working to overcome this challenge by providing New York City’s lowest performing schools with access to a pool of passionate teachers who have the opportunity to lead at the grassroots level, working together with the administration, school staff, and parents/community as partners in their day to day work with students.
