The Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy volunteer teacher program is a two-year program working with highly motivated inner-city boys who attend the Academy on full scholarships and are aspiring to attend competitive, college-preparatory high schools and colleges.
The Volunteer Teacher Experience
You will work and live as part of a team of young and energetic full-time teachers who reside near the Academy and who enjoy their work. Receive excellent mentoring and support in a job that makes a difference!
As a volunteer teacher, your two-year service begins with you gaining valuable first-year teaching experience serving as a summer school teacher in our four-week July education program. During the regular school year (September-May), you will teach a variety of classes, as well as serve as an advisor and coach. The academic year concludes with your service as a camp counselor in the Academy's two-week overnight camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains (June). Your second year follows a similar schedule with increased teaching responsibilities.
In addition, our volunteer teacher program includes the following benefits:
- Health insurance (fully paid, including deductibles)
- Living stipend
- Housing provided in newly renovated row house in Baltimore's historic Federal Hill neighborhood and just a few blocks from the Academy
- Nearby health club membership
- Deferment of student loans, plus Americorps Education Award of $5,550 (eligible after a year of service at the Academy)
- Support to earn a graduate degree in education from Loyola University Maryland while you work at the Academy (conditional on being accepted and the University's continuing partnership)
Applications are now being accepted through June 30, 2018.
