Nashville- Chattanooga offers big-city amenities with a small-town sense of community, where it’s common to stop by your local coffee shop and run into fellow teachers, alumni, students, and parents. This sense of connection fuels our corps members within their schools and at home in their neighborhoods. Corps members fall in love with the many options for entertainment and enjoyment of the outdoors that are nearby.
You must have your bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university by the first day of your summer training.
