Behind the Scenes
Recruiting for 2017-18 Continues

Need in Deed is still accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Teacher Network! Interested 3rd-8th grade teachers in Philadelphia’s traditional public and charter schools are encouraged to submit applications and embark on a meaningful and engaging year-long service learning project with their students.

We are looking for teachers who:
• share Need in Deed’s vision that each student has a capacity to learn;
• desire to incorporate student voice into their teaching practice;
• want to integrate the core curriculum with real-world contexts and a connection to Philadelphia; and
• have strong classroom management skills.

Accepted teachers will receive 35 hours of formal training during the course of the 2017-18 school year, including a two-day summer institute and once-a-month workshops after school. Teachers will also be assigned a Need in Deed staff person who will offer one-on-one project support and coaching for the duration of the project.

Application form and additional information can be found here. Need in Deed will reach out to qualified applicants to set up an interview. Please contact Program Director Kyra Atterbury at with further questions.

We hope you will consider joining Need in Deed’s Network!
