The Urban Catholic Teacher Corps of Boston College and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston
The Urban Catholic Teacher Corps (UCTC) is a two year post-graduate service program that offers new teachers an opportunity to gain classroom experience in urban Catholic schools under the guidance of experience Catholic school teachers. UCTC members teach in the Archdiocese of Boston's Catholic schools, take graduate courses in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College, and live together in an intentional faith-based community.
The fundamental principles of teaching as service, simple living, community life, and spirituality are the cornerstones of the Urban Catholic Teacher Corps. UCTC teachers live together in a community house in the urban area of Dorchester, Massachusetts, where they support each other in every aspect of their personal and professional lives. Participants are full-time regular classroom teachers during the year and take graduate courses throughout the year, as well. For more information, please visit the UCTC website.
