What Is the DC Global Language Corps?
DCPS is delighted to partner with the Peace Corps to introduce the Global Language Corps (GLC) fellowship. This program connects Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) with demonstrated multi-lingual proficiency and global experience to DCPS World Language classrooms. RPCVs selected for the GLC are given an opportunity to continue to apply their developing teaching practice in a US context, and find a professional home in a District that places a high value on global competence.
DC GLC Fellows are DCPS World Language teachers, teaching full time in DCPS elementary, middle, or high school classrooms. Through this program, we provide students an opportunity to learn and RPCVs a means to share their cultural and language knowledge and experience with out students through quality language instruction.
In addition to World Language instruction for every student, DCPS offers innovative global programming such as the Embassy Adoption Program, the fully-funded DCPS Study Abroad program, International Baccalaureate Programmes, International Food Days, and a Global Studies Schools network. DCPS offers the highest teacher salary in the nation, and teachers are provided with multiple leadership opportunities, both in and out of their school building through our Leadership Initiative for Teachers (LIFT) career ladder.
