National Teaching Fellowship

Citizen Schools San Jose , CA 95112

Posted 3 weeks ago

As an AmeriCorps National Teaching Fellow at Citizen Schools, you’ll change the lives of middle school students. You’ll serve as a member of a diverse team of caring adults dedicated to transforming the school day for middle school students in low income communities. We do this by adding three hours to the end of the school day, during which students receive additional academic support in math or language arts, complete homework in structured sessions and participate in hands-on apprenticeships taught by volunteer professionals from the community.

As a National Teaching Fellow, you will be performing an extraordinary act of citizenship, helping the nation to address one of its greatest challenges, educating our youth in ways that promote self belief, college readiness, and the skills needed to achieve their dreams. It is an opportunity that leads to a better future for students, yet also holds rich benefits for those willing to dedicate two years of their life to national service through AmeriCorps. That’s why we call the opportunity: Teach, Serve, Grow.

All National Teaching Fellow positions begin in July 2019 with Summer Institute, an intensive training program during which you will learn the skills needed to successfully serve in low income schools and deliver high quality academic enrichment to students.

We are committed to providing ongoing coaching opportunities throughout their two years of service that will lead to student impact, as well as career advancement.
