In an effort to increase the quality of education in urban schools, Urban Teacher Center (UTC) provides intensive training and ongoing support for a carefully vetted staff of teachers. After a one-year residency program, UTC teachers go on to a three-year urban teaching commitment at a high-need urban school, with accountability evaluations based on student performance. More than 100 UTC residents and teachers currently work in Washington, DC, and Baltimore public schools, providing engaging instruction for 5,000 local students.
To help its teachers deliver quality instruction, UTC provides a $500 startup stipend for new teachers to purchase classroom tools and materials. Teachers can choose how they would like to spend their stipends, with options such as technology, math teaching aids, and library collections.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide reading materials for local students. If G-Team members raise $500, then Urban Teacher Center can fund a stipend for a new teacher to create an in-classroom library. Each additional $500 raised will fund a stipend for another library.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
