Teach Toledo

Diverse Teachers Matter

Teach Toledo is helping Toledo's citizens become tomorrow's teachers.  The mission of Teach Toledo is to support the development of diverse educators committed to representing local and national urban communities.

The first cohort of 20 future teachers began in Fall 2017.  Beginning Fall 2018, we will be taking applications for the Fall 2019 cohort.  Contact us if you are interested in joining a future cohort.

Thank you for your interest in the Teach Toledo program.  Cohort I started in the Fall 2017 semester and is currently closed to new students.  Recruitment for the next cohort will begin Fall 2018 - please check back with us at that time for more information.

Participants in Teach Toledo must be admitted into the University of Toledo, which requires having a high school diploma or GED. We strongly recommend and will help participants apply for the federal Pell grant and other financial aid.
