Partners in Los Angeles Catholic Education - PLACE Corps

PLACE Corps is Loyola Marymount University's nationally recognized Catholic teacher service corps, housed in the Center for Catholic Education within the School of Education. Built upon three pillars - Professional Development, Intentional Community, and Ignatian Spirituality - PLACE Corps members earn a master's degree and teaching credential while serving as full-time teachers in primarily under-resourced Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Diocese of Orange, and Diocese of San Bernardino, all within Southern California. During their two-year commitment, program members live with one another in intentional community while exploring and strengthening shared values rooted in Catholicism, and providing inclusive experiences with a commitment to social justice. PLACE Corps is a proud member of the Catholic Volunteer Network (CVN) and the University Consortium for Catholic Education (UCCE).
