MTR believes that educational inequality is one of the greatest social justice and Civil Rights issues in America today. 

The MTR mission is to provide Christian love expressed through equal education and have a grand vision of seeing restored communities living with dignity and in peace.

We recruit, train, and support teachers as they step into the classroom to learn how to be effective educators within the city of Memphis. Be trained and licensed as a K-5 teacher, 6-12 teacher, or K-12 ESL teacher in just one year!

“Beyond getting to be a part of the important and redemptive work of education in a city as special and historic as Memphis, getting to do so with a cohort of like-minded peers led by excellent career educators is the opportunity of a lifetime. I don’t know of many programs that offer such high levels of support and such a rich community."
