CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE IN URBAN AND RURAL EDUCATION

PROGRAMS

In conjunction with the Liberty Partnerships Program, CEURE developed the High School Future Teachers Club (HSFTC).  The primary goal of the HSFTC is to engage high school students who are interested in going into the teaching profession, and in particular, teaching in urban schools.  This is a recruitment initiative that is the targeted at schools that have a large population of students of color.  Through their participation in the HSFTC, it is our hope that they will pursue a teaching degree at Buffalo State College.  There are currently four Buffalo schools that participate. Teachers from the schools serve as facilitators of the groups.  Club activities include tutoring, cultural events, seminars, SAT prep, interview workshops, shadowing, mentoring, and special workshops at Buffalo State College.
