In collaboration with Teach for America, Alverno also offers a path to licensure and a master’s degree through the Teach for America Licensure Program. Corps members selected for this program are placed as teachers of record for two years in Milwaukee public, charter, and choice schools while taking graduate-level coursework in a cohort program. TFA corps members are supported in both years by Alverno and TFA coaches who visit their classrooms. Applications for this program are completed through Teach for America.
