Santa Clara University


Future Teachers Project


The SCU Future Teachers Project (FTP) was established in 1995 in an effort to provide college-preparatory programming and support to students who want to become teachers in urban and under-served communities. In June 2000, our first seven FTP students graduated from Santa Clara University.

We now serve over eighty students at the university and high school levels throughout Silicon Valley and the Bay Area.
