The Inner-City Teaching Corps (ICTC), a program of the Alain Locke Initiative, is an elite group of future leaders who commit to teaching in Chicago's urban schools for two years. Corps members obtain their certification in collaboration with Northwestern University while working with other master educators to develop the skills needed to be leaders within their schools. Living either independently or in a faith-based community, Corps members receive support both from one another and from experienced ICTC coaches and staff. Corps members provide the high quality instruction that energizes schools and closes the achievement gap, opening opportunities for all students regardless of income level. Participation in ICTC puts participants on the fast-track to educational leadership, with preferred access to the Alain Locke Fellows and Accelerate New School Leadership Program. The Inner-City Teaching Corps is where the high-impact educational leaders of tomorrow begin. To learn more and begin the application, visit www.alainlocke.org
