SCHOOLS AT THE VILLAGE
TUTOR CORPS PROGRAM
The Great Oaks Tutor Corps is a diverse group of recent college graduates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Some tutors are interested in education policy and wish to experience life on the ground in an urban school. Others plan to pursue a career in medicine, law or to enroll in another graduate program and wish to first give a year of service. For tutors who wish to become high-performing teachers, Great Oaks offers multiple pathways to certification. In exchange for serving as an AmeriCorps Great Oaks Tutor Corps member with us, tutors receive fully furnished housing at Teachers Village with utilities and basic household items included, a living stipend, health insurance, a Segal Education Award after completing their service hours and the opportunity to be a part of a community where everyone is passionate about changing outcomes for urban students.

In a complex, virtually one of a kind public-private partnership, development assistance and financial backing came from a wide variety of financial and lending institutions, individual investors, and city, state and federal governments. The project also received one of the largest residential Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit allocations in the State of New Jersey. The amalgamation of these financial arrangements resulted in the $150 million needed for the eight-building project.
