The MATCH Corps is a one-year Urban Education fellowship program. It is possibly the most competitive such program in the nation, more competitive than admission to the Harvard Graduate School of Education or Teach for America.

Elite recent college graduates from excellent universities across the country commit one year to public service in Boston. They are assigned 6-7 MATCH students at the beginning of the year, with whom they work in small group or 1-on-1 tutorials over the course each day, doing close academic support and building relationships. They receive housing and a modest living stipend. After that, some go into teaching; some to med school and law school; and others get involved in public policy.

The goal is clear: college success for each student. Most would become the first in their families to achieve that. Therefore, the demands are intense: many Corps members work 60 hour weeks, usually with two students at a time.

MATCH Corps members work relentlessly to build in-depth relationships with their students, acting as mentors and helping their students to reach specific goals. Corps members have close contact with parents and guardians, building the strong bridge between home and school that is an important part of the MATCH philosophy. The school environment is small enough that every Corps member knows every student.
