Build your career. Build the church.
How you build your Career.
You accomplished something amazing: You earned a college degree. Now, what are your next steps?
How do you begin building your career?
Teach for Christ is an ideal first step into the work world.
As a missionary educator in a Catholic school,
you will learn professional communication, project management, and leadership …skills that every
employer looks for in their future employees.
But maybe you are looking to gain more than professional skills. You may be considering teaching as your career. This is a great way to start! You will work alongside experienced faculty and staff, learning best practices in the art of classroom instruction and management. The experience you gain can open doors to that first teaching job. Over half of Teach for Christ missionaries receive an offer for a full-time position in a Catholic school after their year of service.
How you build the Church.
Catholic education is so much more than academic achievement; it is about educating the whole person.
Catholic teachers help children grow deeper in their faith,
in integrity and in their knowledge and understanding
of the world.
By serving as a tutor or a coach or a teacher or a marketer in a Catholic school, you are helping to form the next generation of Catholics.
"Do you want to do a good deed? Educate the young!
Do you want to perform a holy act? Educate the young! Do you want to do a holy thing? Educate the young!
Truly, now and for the future, among holy things, this is the holiest."
