Thank you for your interest in Lalanne!
Lalanne, a post-graduate teacher service program, specializes in supporting beginning Catholic school educators by combining service and teaching.
Lalanne teachers make a two-year commitment to teach in an under-resourced Catholic school, live together in a faith-based community, and pursue professional and spiritual/personal development. Under-resourced schools are identified as those schools primarily in urban or rural areas that struggle to attract young, faith-filled teachers.
Service in Lalanne is a commitment to making a difference in the lives of children who face unique challenges in their school and community settings. Named in honor of Marianist Brother, Father Jean Baptiste Lalanne, the Lalanne program is an initiative of the Center for Catholic Education in the School of Education & Health Sciences at the University of Dayton.
Lalanne in the news!
Lalanne students Heather Mills and Courtney Shea teach second grade at two separate Catholic schools in the Dayton area. The roommates collaborated to plan an innovative and fun field trip for their students to Kroc Community Center in Dayton, focusing on building faith and community.
