Mission Statement


The fundamental principals of teaching as service, simple living, community life, and fellowship and spirituality are the cornerstones of the Urban Catholic Teacher Corps. Twelve UCTC volunteers live together in a community house in the urban area of Dorchester, Mass., where they support each other in every aspect of their personal and professional lives. UCTC volunteers are full-time regular classroom teachers during the academic year and take classes or do service during the summers and, at times, during the Fall and Spring.
